By: Patti Smith
Vintage; Reprint edition (October 6, 2015)
This book is the second memoir of the legendary Patti Smith. Good-grief can she write. It is nearly a writers dream. Coffee, hours or reflection, and pages and pages of unfinished notes. M Train aches with nostalgia for a well lived creative life. And it also gives young creatives a success to emulate. Don’t miss her first memoir, Just Kids.
Two of my favorite quotes:
“We want things we cannot have. We seek to reclaim a certain moment, sound, sensation. I want to hear my mother’s voice. I want to see my children as children. Hands small, feet swift. Everything changes. Boy grown, father dead, daughter taller than me, weeping from a bad dream. Please stay forever, I say to the things I know. Don’t go. Don’t grow.”
