    Story
    (611)

    Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. It serves as a salute to New York City during the late 60s and 70s and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists' ascent, a prelude to fame.

    Rick says: "Exceptional. Deeply honest and thoughtful."
    "Revealing honest memoir"

    Would you listen to Just Kids again? Why?

    YES. I liked the story and would most likely pick up something that I missed the first time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Just Kids?

    When Robert saved Patti from a possible rape.


    Which character – as performed by Patti Smith – was your favorite?

    Patti


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Robert's death but I was really impressed that Patti didn't exploit it. She could have turned the end into a sobfest, instead she treated his dying with respect.


    Any additional comments?

    I am too young (barely) to have lived their lives but it would have been interesting!

  • Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Rachel Maddow

    Story
    (1277)

    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    Dolf says: "Half the National Debt?"
    "Rachel is brilliant"
