#47 — M Train by Patty Smith

M Train by Patty Smith
Rating: 3/5
  • In her other book, Just Kids, the focal point of her book was on her friend Robert Mapplethorpe. This book begins with the line, “It’s not so easy writing about nothing.” While the book isn’t about nothing, it does meander more without a clear focus
  • Meandering isn’t necessarily a bad thing; however, if you think in a linear fashion, it’s hard to get into the rhythm at first. If you can stand it, it does offer interesting insights into her thought processes
