    PDF Patti Smith Ç The Coral Sea Epub õ The Coral MOBI :ì Ç coral pdf, The Coral download, The Coral Sea PDFPatti Smith his come aways since HORSES Or maybe not very far at all Lurking beneath the poetpunk of the famous mapplethorp cover was a woman of profoundly mystical bent In this a fable and an elegy for Robert as she writes in the dedication Patti smith imagines a man searching for the southern cross and a man dying Each of the very short capters are accompanied by a mapplethorpe photograph Profound wrenching prose which caused me to wince in pain and recognition and ultimately which delivers a coda to a life This is amazing stuff the kind of book that should be passed to loved ones wrapped in a ribbon of silk cherished as a gift It is that good It moved me like few books have in my lifeNothing in Patti smiths work had prepared me for the overwhelming beauty of this book A staggering book of wonder

    PDF Patti Smith Ç The Coral Sea Epub õ The Coral MOBI :ì Ç coral pdf, The Coral download, The Coral Sea PDFBy far the most effective writing in this book is that of the introduction Patti Smith recalls her first and last meetings with Robert Maplethorpe whereby she somehow manages by drawing upon both the similarities and differences of these two experiences to express the anguish and tragedy of his death If there are any doubts about Smith's poetic ability this brief beautiful tribute to her friend should lay them to rest The following pages contain some of Maplethorpe's most serene work and Smith's writing is no less inspired Lacking the pretention of some of her earlier work these words are lucid honest heartfelt and rewarding
