Devotion, Smith,  Patti
Patti Smith

Paperback $17.99 - Yale University Press
Anthologies, Essays & Journals - Published: 27/Sep/2018 - ISBN: 9780300240221

Patti Smith first presents an original and beautifully crafted tale of obsession - and then takes us on a second journey, exploring the sources of her story. We travel through the South of France to Camus's house, and visit the garden of the great publisher Gallimard where the ghosts of Mishima, Nabokov, and Genet mingle. Smith tracks down Simone Weil's grave in a lonely cemetery, hours from London, and winds through the nameless Paris streets of Patrick Modiano's novels. An arresting glimpse into the mind and method of a most original writer.
