hanzel and gretel are alive and well

Just KidsJust Kids by Patti Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

one of the most beautiful, honest, and inspirational books i have read in years. it is the story of art and artists becoming, or as patti herself said, “i haven’t fucked much with the past, but i’ve fucked plenty with the future.” the title alone is worth the price of admission, because we all are just that in the eyes of the universe, and artists, and hero/ines of our own stories. “don’t dream it, be it.”
