    Before the National Book Award-winning Just Kids, Patti Smith addressed the life and passing of her intimate friend, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Through the linked pieces of The Coral Sea, Patti Smith honours her comrade-in-arms Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989). She tells the story of a man on an ocean journey to see the Southern Cross, who is reflecting on his life and fighting the illness that is consuming him. Metaphoric and dreamy, this tale of transformation arises from Smith's knowledge of Mapplethorpe from a young man to a mature artist; his close relationship with patron and friend, Sam Wagstaff; his years surviving AIDS; and his ascent into death. The Coral Sea is Smith's lyrically compelling recasting of her grief to recapture Mapplethorpe's life in the past and his future in his art. Rich in evocative details, it shows the man beneath the persona.

    O avtorju

    -Patti Smith-

    Patti Smith je ameriška pisateljica, performerka in vizualna umetnica, 1946

    Patti Smith je priznanje dosegla v sedemdesetih letih z revolucionarnim spajanjem poezije in rocka. Njen ključni album Horses z znano podobo Roberta Mapplethorpa so razglasili za enega izmed stotih najboljših albumov vseh časov. Posnela je dvanajst plošč.
    Risbe je prvikrat razstavljala v Gotham Book Martu leta 1973, od leta 1978 pa jo zastopa galerija Roberta Millerja. Leta 2002 je Muzej Andyja Warhola pripravil retrospektivno razstavo njenih risb, sitotiskov in fotografij z naslovom Strange Messenger. Risbe, fotografije in instalacije so bile leta 2008 na ogled na obsežni razstavi v Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain v Parizu.
    Med njenimi pesniškimi zbirkami so Witt, Babel, Woolgathering, The Coral Sea in Auguries of Innocence.
    Francosko ministrstvo za kulturo jo je leta 2005 odlikovalo s prestižnim naslovom Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres, najvišjim odlikovanjem francoske republike za umetnike. Dve leti pozneje so jo uvrstili v Rock'n'roll dvorano slave.
    Patti Smith se je leta 1980 poročila s pokojnim Fredom Sonicom Smithom iz skupine MC5. Imata sina Jacksona in hčer Jesse. Živi v New Yorku.
    Za avtobiografsko delo Pač mulca (Just Kids, 2010) je prejela ameriško državno nagrado za književnost; nominirana je bila tudi za ameriško kritiško nagrado in nagrado Lambda.
