Just Kids by Patti Smith Summary

C'était l'été où Coltrane est mort, l'été de l'amour et des émeutes, l'été où une rencontre fortuite à Brooklyn a guidé deux jeunes gens sur la voie de l'art, de la ténacité et de l'apprentissage. Patti Smith deviendrait poète et performeuse, et Robert Mapplethorpe, au style très provocateur, se dirigerait vers la photographie. Liés par une même innocence et un même enthousiasme, ils traversent la ville de Brooklyn à Coney Island, de la 42e Rue à la célèbre table ronde du Max's Kansas City, où siège la cour d'Andy Warhol. En 1969, le couple élit domicile au Chelsea Hotel et intègre bientôt une communauté de vedettes et d'inconnues, artistes influents de l'époque et marginaux hauts en couleur. C'est une époque d'intense lucidité, les univers de la poésie, du rock and roll, de l'art et du sexe explosent et s'entrechoquent. Immergés dans ce milieu, deux gamins font le pacte de toujours prendre soin l'un de l'autre. Romantiques, engagés dans leur pratique artistique, nourris de rêves et d'ambitions, ils se soutiennenet et se donnent confiance pendant les années de vache maigre. Just Kids commence comme une histoire d'amour et finit comme une élégie, brossant un inoubliable instantané du New York des années 60-70, de ses riches et de ses pauvres, de ses paumés et de ses provocateurs. Véritable conte, il retrace l'ascension de deux jeunes artistes, tel un prélude à leur réussite.

Just Kids from the Bronx by Arlene Alda Summary

"A down-to-earth, inspiring book about the American promise fulfilled." —President Bill Clinton "Fascinating . . . . Made me wish I had been born in the Bronx." —Barbara Walters A touching and provocative collection of memories that evoke the history of one of America's most influential boroughs—the Bronx—through some of its many success stories The vivid oral histories in Arlene Alda's Just Kids from the Bronx reveal what it was like to grow up in the place that bred the influencers in just about every field of endeavor today. The Bronx is where Michael Kay, the New York Yankees' play-by-play broadcaster, first experienced baseball, where J. Crew's CEO Millard (Mickey) Drexler found his ambition, where Neil deGrasse Tyson and Dava Sobel fell in love with science early on and where music-making inspired hip hop's Grandmaster Melle Mel to change the world of music forever. The parks, the pick-up games, the tough and tender mothers, the politics, the gangs, the food—for people who grew up in the Bronx, childhood recollections are fresh. Arlene Alda's own Bronx memories were a jumping-off point from which to reminisce with a nun, a police officer, an urban planner, and with Al Pacino, Mary Higgins Clark, Carl Reiner, Colin Powell, Maira Kalman, Bobby Bonilla, and many other leading artists, athletes, scientists and entrepreneurs—experiences spanning six decades of Bronx living. Alda then arranged these pieces of the past, from looking for violets along the banks of the Bronx River to the wake-up calls from teachers who recognized potential, into one great collective story, a film-like portrait of the Bronx from the early twentieth century until today.

Quicklet on Patti Smith's Just Kids (CliffNotes-like Summary) by Adam McKibbin Summary

ABOUT THE BOOK Plenty has been written about Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe, two of the more celebrated artists to emerge from the vibrant New York artistic circles of the ‘70s. Now Smith shares her story - or at least part of it - in her own words, with Just Kids, winner of the National Book Award for Nonfiction. Smith’s Just Kids tells the tumultuous story of their romance, artistic self-discovery and eventual commercial success. Like all great autobiographies, her story is strewn with anecdotal snapshots and inner observations that would have been beyond the grasp of even the most dedicated biographer. It’s an intimate, tender account that, as the title suggests, sticks mostly to the duo’s formative years. In telling her own story, Smith also pulls back the lens to capture some of the energy of the era, a golden age ruled by icons like Andy Warhol (a major source of fascination for the young Mapplethorpe), Bob Dylan, and Lou Reed. Many of the main settings in the book - the Chelsea Hotel, Max’s Kansas City, CBGB - have become places of lore. MEET THE AUTHOR Adam McKibbin's work has appeared in a wide variety of magazines and websites, including The Nation, the Chicago Tribune, AlterNet, Paste and Punk Planet. He's worked in web editorial and social media management for years, and is a seasoned interviewer whose favorite subjects include David Lynch, Tori Amos and human rights journalist Mac McClelland. He studied creative writing at the University of Wisconsin and received the Award for Academic Excellence for his collected fiction. He's currently working on his first nonfiction book. Adam lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter, and can be found on Twitter at @TheRedAlert. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Just Kids begins with Patti Smith as an actual kid; she was a sickly child, getting herself through the day by losing herself in stacks of books and imagining herself walking in the footsteps of heroes like Rimbaud and Bob Dylan. At the earliest opportunity, she sets out for New York City with barely a dollar in her hand and nary a job prospect. Shortly thereafter, she meets a striking and self-assured young artist named Robert Mapplethorpe. Smith and Mapplethorpe become fast friends, then lovers, roommates and mutual muses. The early stretch of Just Kids documents a time when money was scarce but inspiration was abundant. Smith worked on her poetry while Mapplethorpe explored increasingly dark and sexualized themes in his collage art; they set out with fame and fortune squarely on their minds, but hadn’t yet found their mediums of choice. In each case, they found their calling (Smith in music, Mapplethorpe in photography) with the help of pestering from the other. Buy a copy to keep reading!

Just Kids Limited Edition by Patti Smith Summary

It was the summer Coltrane died, the summer of love and riots, and the summer when a chance encounter in Brooklyn led two young people on a path of art, devotion, and initiation. Patti Smith would evolve as a poet and performer, and Robert Mapplethorpe would direct his highly provocative style toward photography. Bound in innocence and enthusiasm, they traversed the city from Coney Island to Forty-second Street, and eventually to the celebrated round table of Max's Kansas City, where the Andy Warhol contingent held court. In 1969, the pair set up camp at the Hotel Chelsea and soon entered a community of the famous and infamous—the influential artists of the day and the colorful fringe. It was a time of heightened awareness, when the worlds of poetry, rock and roll, art, and sexual politics were colliding and exploding. In this milieu, two kids made a pact to take care of each other. Scrappy, romantic, committed to create, and fueled by their mutual dreams and drives, they would prod and provide for one another during the hungry years. Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. It serves as a salute to New York City during the late sixties and seventies and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists' ascent, a prelude to fame.

M Train by Patti Smith Summary

En dix-huit "stations", Patti Smith nous entraîne dans un voyage qui traverse le paysage de ses aspirations et de son inspiration, par le prisme des cafés et autres lieux qu’elle a visités dans le monde. De la Casa Azul de Frida Kahlo aux tombes de Genet, Rimbaud, Mishima, elle trace un itinéraire flottant au cœur de ses références et de sa vie. Oscillant entre rêve et réalité, passé et présent, Patti Smith nous propose un livre inclassable, profondément sensible et sincère, illustré par les photographies en noir et blanc qu’elle prend depuis toujours, et qui confirme qu’elle est l’une des artistes actuelles les plus singulières et indépendantes.
