Just Kids by Patti Smith - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Just Kids:

Patti's time with Robert Mapplethorpe.

My favorite Patti Smith quote from the book:

"I reflected on the fact that no matter how good I aspired to be, I was never going to achieve perfection."

Questions to ponder while reading Just Kids:

How much do you need to eat to survive?

How much would you give up to follow your dream?

My review of Just Kids:

I am a big, big fan of Patti's

I admire her discipline.

I don't do anchovies.
