“Woolgathering”

Los Angeles Times book critic David Ulin wrote a nice piece about the reissue of Patti Smith’s Hanuman book of poems Woolgathering. Of course, I have the original in my Smith collection. She talks about her melancholia during the years she lived in a suburban rook in Detroit, essentially being a housewife. I interviewed her there and I could feel her loneliness — the loneliness of parenting.

Patti Smith is practical, mythic in ‘Woolgathering’ – latimes.com.
