Anything is possible - it's the Year of the Monkey by Patti Smith
cover blurb - February 2016, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and also inescapable sorrow. For Patti Smith - inveterately curious, always exploring, always writing - this becomes a year of reckoning with the changes in life's gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America.
As Patti Smith travels from CA to AZ to KY, her dreamlike writing and haunting Polaroids give Year of the Monkey quite a reflection on a life. She's a unique woman - funny, wise, odd, endearing, and weird. There are times I wasn't sure I truly understood her message or thought process. However, this book is unique and intriguing, as is the singer poet rebel that is Patti Smith.
