Just Kids
American punk rock singer Patti Smith had a lofty position in rock music, her influence has stretched out to the whole world. Her memoir Just Kids has won the 2010 National Book Award. In this book, she told the dramatic story between her and the art photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in emotional, poetic, passional and exquisite words. The story restored the creative life of American society in 1960s and 1970s, especially the artists community's life.

It was an era that idealism thrived, spiritual freedom flourished and art came first. Superstars outstood and a great number of geniuses came forth. At that time, New York City gathered a multitude of artists in various fields from across America and even the world. The author inadvertently mentioned the names and anecdotes of Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg and Janis Joplin, which are so fascinating to art fans today. The honesty and deep love of the author, together with the dreamy story, as well as the professional and fluent translation, shows Chinese readers the charm of that era and unique charisma of Patti Smith besides her music.
