Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe
A couple weeks ago I checked out from the library two memoirs by people born in the 1940's, Roger Ebert and Patti Smith. Their lives are somewhat different. Smith's book is focused mainly on her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe and reads like a novel. Ebert's book is more episodic and reads more like a biography. I'm enjoying both in their own ways.
