WOOLGATHERING provides a brief but pointed memoir by Patti Smith, who offers a survey of her childhood memories and the truths she learned in her early years. Memories from youth entwine with those from her twenties experiencing New York to make for a powerful literary reflection on sacred experiences of youth. WOOLGATHERING was completed on her 45th birthday and originally published in a slim volume: this augmented edition includes writing omitted from its first printing, adds new photos and illustrations and is a 'must' for any fan of Patti Smith.
