Selected by Indie Booksellers for the February 2010 Indie Notables
“Just Kids is more than a vividly written, detail-rich memoir of Patti Smith's relationship with the young Robert Mapplethorpe. (Although that alone would be plenty to make this a delightful read.) It's also a snapshot of a bygone era in the New York City art and music scene. Highly recommended!”
