Reading a book by Patti Smith is, for me, always an aesthetic experience. Her compelling use of language allows me to enter her worlds easily and fully. Devotion especially left an impression on me for weeks. This is part meditation on craft, part diary, and part Nabokov-esque narrative. Smith weaves them together expertly and beautifully. If you'd like to hear a thousand more reasons why I love this book (and Patti), come find me.
