Editorial Reviews

"Patti Smith wasn''t just a rocker; she was a poet, and a book of her life calls for nothing less than fine art....the book captures her illustrious career in a way perfectly suited for the musician--poetic, engaging, and passionate." ~Chicago Magazine

"Coffee-table books, by definition, aren''t meant to be page-turners. Except for this month''s Patti Smith: Dream of Life, which isn''t so much a glossy centerpiece as it is an addictive pictorial of the godmother of punk''s life as a poet, activist, mother, style icon, and all-around kick-ass front woman." ~Elle

"With the Rizzoli imprint, we have come to expect certain things: perfect printing, the highest quality papers, flawless binding, superior layouts and type. This historic book is no different." ~SoHo Journal
