READ - PATTI SMITH / M TRAIN

FASHION XY

As though Patti Smith's prize winning auto-biography "Just Kids" wasn&rsquot critical acclaimed enough, the second installment "M Train" goes further, documenting some of the most important events in the iconic singer-songwriter&rsquos artistic life. The book specifically hones in on 18 key periods. The cover features  a photograph of Smith sitting in her now closed Café &lsquoIno. In her own words &ldquoI don&rsquot have a big rock &rsquon&rsquo roll lifestyle, a sex, drugs and rock&rsquon&rsquoroll story to tell. I think I have maybe a better story.&rdquo These words alone have a distinct enough rock n&rsquo roll quiditiy to prove her credentials as a bona fide post-punk icon. On shelves this autumn.
