A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFrom the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids Magical GUARDIAN A gripping tale of the search for meaning in times of turbulence - expressed with Smiths signature poetic flair VOGUE Extraordinary ... A tense, teasing mix of reality and dream Sunday TimesA melancholy mood and poetic language distinguish Smiths third memoir BBC Her willingness to look closely at lifes closing chapters makes for a magical book WASHINGTON POST, The 10 books to read in SeptemberFollowing a run of New Years concerts at San Franciscos legendary Fillmore, Patti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz, about to embark on a year of solitary wandering. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland, with no design yet heeding signs, including a talking sign that looms above her, prodding and sparring like the Cheshire Cat.

In February, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing with it unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. In a strangers words, Anything is possible: after all, its the year of the monkey. For Patti Smith - inveterately curious, always exploring, tracking thoughts, writing the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in lifes gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape.

Taking us from Southern California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places - this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment. But as Patti Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope of a better world.

Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smiths signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
