Just Kids

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Patti Smith

Narrated By: Patti Smith

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: July 2011

Duration: 9 hours 51 minutes


In Just Kids, Patti Smith’s first book of prose, the legendary American artist offers a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the epochal days of New York City and the Chelsea Hotel in the late sixties and seventies. An honest and moving story of youth and friendship, Smith brings the same unique, lyrical quality to Just Kids as she has to the rest of her formidable body of work—from her influential 1975 album Horses to her visual art and poetry.


  • Colleen Borgendale

    Lovely story with characters that pull you into their lives. Patti also does a fantastic job narrating.

  • Vlibrarian

    Patti's reading of her own story was so harmonious. Her art and poetry came through like the lyrics of her songs. She documents her history, the amazing paths she crossed and her serendipitous experiences beautifully. I'd love for her to document her later years as well. I could listen to her read all day.
