‘M Train’ by Patti Smith

Smith has just announced a new memoir, M Train, which will be out October the 6th. The cover featured above is a photograph taken in a NYC Greenwich Village cafe, which is exactly where the book begins.

From this very cafe the reader will be taken to such ‘creative aspirations and inspirations’ as Frieda Kahlo’s Casa Azul in Mexico and to a meeting of an Arctic explorer’s society in Berlin…and if that doesn’t sound like the best thing ever there are black and white polaroids taken by Smith herself.
