DevotionDevotion by Patti Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A long short story clearly inspired by Chekhov sandwiched between thoughts and travels about the creative process. I found the musings on either end stronger than the story, but it is interesting to see the final product of the process she discusses. Smith is a strong writer with a clear voice and sense of self that shows in the work. The book is part of the Why I Write series, based on her lecture to commemorate the awarding of the Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes at Yale University.
