Críticas:

Both mundane and magical . Moves constantly between reverie and memory . Portents and symbols lurk in unexpected places, and everyday objects become freighted with meaning . A reflection both on mortality and of the times in which Smith finds herself, but rich in detail (Guardian)

A gripping tale of the search for meaning in times of turbulence - expressed with Smith's signature poetic flair (Vogue)

A moving account of the emotional stumbles, physical and intellectual wanderings and deep losses Smith experienced in her 70th year (Independent)

Some rock stars shut themselves away from life, but Smith's engagement with the world only deepens, as this dreamy memoir shows (Daily Telegraph)

Extraordinary . A tense, teasing mix of reality and dream . It's a drifter's book, in time, space and the imagination (Sunday Times)

A picaresque voyage through her dreams and life as she faced 70, dealing with flashes of "sorrow's vertigo" as she remembers all the loves and rock contemporaries who are gone, with a kaleidoscope of references from "Mr. Robot" to Marcus Aurelius to Martin Beck mysteries to Maria Callas's Medea (Maureen Dowd International New York Times)

A profoundly beautiful book, poetic in its prose and metaphysical in its meaning, it's quite a stunning read (Financial Times)

The narrating voice is the voice of Smith's music, twisting between the incantations of a priestess and laconic poetry . There is plenty of wonderful in this small, sly, mystic book (Spectator)

A beatnik Alice in Wonderland, measured out in black coffee and Polaroids, it's full of quiet puzzles, small epiphanies, more little clues how to live (Q Magazine)

Arresting . Diverting and often unexpected, fresh and diverting (Literary Review)

Reseña del editor:

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From 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 Smith's signature poetic flair' VOGUE

'Extraordinary ... A tense, teasing mix of reality and dream' Sunday Times

'A melancholy mood and poetic language distinguish Smith's third memoir' BBC

'Her willingness to look closely at life's closing chapters makes for a magical book' WASHINGTON POST, 'The 10 books to read in September'

Following a run of New Year's concerts at San Francisco's 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 stranger's words, "Anything is possible: after all, it's 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 life's 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 Smith's signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
