Year Of The Monkey By Patti Smith(paperback) Biography Novel
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids Magical GUARDIAN A gripping tale of the search for meaning in times of turbulence – expressed with Smith s signature poetic flair VOGUE Extraordinary … A tense, teasing mix of reality and dream SUNDAY TIMES Her willingness to look closely at life s closing chapters makes for a magical book WASHINGTON POST, The 10 books to read in September Following a run of New Year s concerts at San Francisco s legendary Fillmore, Patti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz, about to embark on a year of solitary wandering. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland, with no design yet heeding signs, including a talking sign that looms above her, prodding and sparring like the Cheshire Cat. In February, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing with it unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. In a stranger s words, “Anything is possible: after all, it s the year of the monkey.” For Patti Smith – inveterately curious, always exploring, tracking thoughts, writing the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in life s gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape. Taking us from Southern California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places – this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment. But as Patti Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope of a better world. Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smith s signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
