Year of the Monkey, by Patti Smith (Bloomsbury 2019)

Neil's picture

This is the third of Patti Smith's memoir/jounals, following Just Kids and M Train. This is a little different to the earlier two, being briefer, meandering and dreamlike. It's no less powerful for its lack of formal structure. She writes beautifully, intelligently and movingly. It's a very timely book, as our time becomes less certain.
