With published and unpublished photos by Robert Mapplethorpe, Judy Linn, and others, this raucous volume will remind people of why Patti Smith became a legend."@en ;
    schema:description "Early Work: 1970-1979 contains poems and prose from her chap-books Seventh Heaven, Ha! Ha! Houdini! (complete), and Witt, as well as selections from her landmark work Babel. Over one-quarter of the works are previously unpublished, chosen from transcriptions of performance pieces, notebook entries, and the author's personal papers. In an introduction, Smith places her writing in the context of the seventies, a time when the consequences of leading a life on the edge were less profound."@en ;
