Remember, in 2010, Patti Smith published her wonderful book “Just Kids”, followed six years later by “M Train”.
Since November 1, 2018, the American rock singer and musician – as well as poetess and writer – is back with her latest book called “Devotion”.
And it’s a story about obsession that motivates Patti Smith, of a creating obsession, we find in different shapes throughout this very private book. Coming to Paris, the artist sees everything and takes everything in. Like a diary, she writes down her feeling that will come and create “Devotion”, the short story making the heart of the book and named after it, poetic and chilling tale revisiting Goethe’s Faustus but in a feminine way. Patti Smith offers us a moving sneak peak of her writing process as well as a thought about what pushes her to write again and again.
On the occasion of the release, Patti Smith will stop by Paris again. After a signing session at the L’Ecume des Pages bookstore in the 6th arrondissement this past October 31, then a second one at the Comme Un Roman bookstore in Paris 3rd arrondissement on December 6, Patti Smith will be at the Champs-Elysées Publicis Drugstore on Friday December 7, 2018.
