M Train – Patti Smith

I just know this will be my favorite book this year. Patti Smith’s M Train is due to be released on October 6th by Knopf.

The photo on the book’s jacket is a sacred memento for Patti Smith: It shows her at Cafe ‘Ino in Greenwich Village, where M Train begins, and where Smith went every morning for a breakfast of black coffee and brown bread. On the last day before Cafe ‘Ino closed, a passing photographer took the picture. Smith calls it “the first and last picture at my corner table in Ino… My portal to where.”

Soon I can have that cup of coffee with Patti in the Village I have dreamed about…
