Patti Smith first presents an original and beautifully crafted tale of a young skater who lives for her art. She then takes us on a second journey, exploring the sources of her story; to Camus's house, the garden of the great publisher Gallimard where the ghosts of Mishima, Nabokov, and Genet mingle, Simone Weil's grave in a lonely cemetery, through the nameless Paris streets of Patrick Modiano's novels. Whether writing in a cafe or a train, Smith generously opens her notebooks and lets us glimpse the alchemy of her art and craft.
