Recommended for These Courses
An energetic and gracious tribute to not only a great artist, but also to a powerful moment in her oeuvre — and to those who contributed to it and shared in it.
—New York Journal of Books
Stipe's personal friendship lends something greater to the overall vision of this book. It isn't simply a set of snapshots of performances, rather a collection of rare moments. The personal nature of the anthology makes it all the more enticing and enjoyable. Smith, in all her glory and awe-inspiring talent, is portrayed in the truest light.
A fascinating book … including appearances by Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Tom Verlaine, the members of Sonic Youth and more … and the short text tributes to Smith by these people, scattered throughout the manuscript, are well worth your time.
—Chicago Center for Literature and Photography
This book comprises Michael Stipe's intimate and evocative photos of Patti Smith on tour in 1995, along with other cultural celebrities who appeared with her, such as Allen Ginsberg.
