Patti Smith is a talen...

Patti Smith is a talent beyond measure. Woolgathering is obviously an early work but it is evident that she could write, that she certainly possessed rhythm, and she was seriously engaged in life and all it had to offer her. There are some chapters miles above others in their quality, but the book as a whole did read as a prose poem and I found it more personal than artistic. Deserving of only three stars in respect to literary technique, I instead gave this book the instructive four because "I really liked it" and that meets the standard allowed for in the goodreads value system. All praise to Patti Smith and New Directions for publishing a very nice cloth-board edition of this earlier work.

This is an odd one. In well under 100 pages, Smith manages to cram in photographs, vignettes from her life and a dose of poetry. I picked it up at the library after one of my favourite BookTubers reviewed it, and I'm glad I did, even though I've forgotten most of it already. It's undeniably well written and has its profoundly beautiful moments - I particularly liked the vignette entitled 'Nineteen Fifty-Seven', which manages to combine fire, grief, family and a dog into a heartbreaking few pages - but the poetry and more random 'artistic' moments didn't do much for me, I'm afraid. It came across as a bit pretentious where I think it was just meant to be honest. If Just Kids sticks with Smith's talent for writing and nixes the odd tangents, I think we'll get on just fine. Tentatively recommended.

A little book of poetic memoirs - small, but big hearted. Childhood memories combine with modern-day reminiscing. I preferred _Just Kids_, but this functions as a sort of prequel.
