Patti Smith won the National Book Award. You know what this means right.
Probably it takes so long for the language of life to pry its way into literature because most writers are too busy doing that to live it. In Patti’s case of course writing was music most of the time and she was living and doing. She was a poet before she was a rock star. The same thing I think. Just different ways of doing.
My friend read the book and she thought it was great. I recommended she go to the library for some Eileen Myles. I think it will take a while to get Just Kids from the library.
Oh yeah and umm. The fuck is this?
