Review: Just Kids

Procura do Editor - Bookreporter.com

It was the summer Coltrane died, the summer of love and riots, and the summer when a chance encounter in Brooklyn led two young people on a path of art, devotion, and initiation.

Like several of the other reviewers I have read, Patti Smith has never been a big influence on me. I came of age around the time her career as a musician was becoming established. While I was a huge ... Ler crítica na íntegra
