Las letras de las mejores canciones de Patti Smith, desde 1970 hasta hoy, en una edición que incluye documentos manuscritos inéditos y que conmemora los 40 años de su disco más emblemático, Horses. Todos tenemos una canción. Llegan así, de repente, expresando alegría o soledad, y sirven para disipar el miedo o celebrar un pequeño triunfo. Casi no nos damos cuenta de que estamos componiéndolas mientras las cantamos, a menudo solos, casi para nosotros. Encontrar la canción que llevamos dentro es lo que nos impulsa a cantar. Puede ser un cántico de alabanza, una chispa de rebelión o una plegaria adolescente. Descubrimos la inspiración donde podemos... En una vieja guitarra arrinconada o en un garaje, debajo de la cama o colgando del escaparate de una casa de empeño. En una frase que nos trae el viento mientras caminamos o en el reflejo de nuestro rostro en un espejo. Esas canciones tan pequeñas hechas de poesía, la actuación improvisada y la colaboración dieron lugar a estas letras, escritas con la esperanza de calar hondo, llegando a alguien que descubra lo que significan en su interior y las cante con nosotros. Patti Smith

"In lyric essays, a story, poems, and photographs, Smith illuminates the whirl of chance and choice that stokes a writer's imagination, recounting her fascination on the eve of a trip to Paris with Simone Weil and an evocative, accidentally discovered film about Stalin's mass deportation of Estonians. In France, a gravestone, a televised figure-skating competition, a meal, and a garden all converge in what becomes Devotion, [a] ... fairy tale about a young, displaced Estonian skater and a solitary dealer in rare objects and arms. This ... fable about creativity and obsession, possession and freedom is followed by a meditation on how a work of art is, for other artists, a call to action"--Booklist, 08/01/2017.

National Best Seller From the National Book Award–winning author of Just Kids: an unforgettable odyssey of a legendary artist, told through the prism of the cafés and haunts she has worked in around the world. It is a book Patti Smith has described as “a roadmap to my life.” M Train begins in the tiny Greenwich Village café where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. Through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, and across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, we travel to Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul in Mexico; to a meeting of an Arctic explorer’s society in Berlin; to a ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York’s Far Rockaway that Smith acquires just before Hurricane Sandy hits; and to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud, and Mishima. Woven throughout are reflections on the writer’s craft and on artistic creation. Here, too, are singular memories of Smith’s life in Michigan and the irremediable loss of her husband, Fred Sonic Smith. Braiding despair with hope and consolation, illustrated with her signature Polaroids, M Train is a meditation on travel, detective shows, literature, and coffee. It is a powerful, deeply moving book by one of the most remarkable multiplatform artists at work today. From the Hardcover edition.

Impossible to categorize, moving easily between the literary, art and musical worlds, always unpredictable and impassioned, idiosyncratic musician and artist Patti Smith here presents an impressive body of visual art, mostly works on paper. Bringing together approximately 60 works spanning the past 30 years, "Strange Messenger" collects early pieces as well as new ones inspired by the September 11, 2001, bombing of the World Trade Center, in which Smith expresses her views about violence, religion, war and intolerance. This book marks the first occasion that Smith's drawings have been brought together in a single volume, as well as the first publication of most of the included works.
