    Den heta sommaren 1967 lämnar Patti Smith New Jersey för att söka äventyret i New York. Hon är tjugo år gammal, törstar efter nya intryck och erfarenheter, vill inspireras och utvecklas. Och framför allt vill hon skapa. I New York träffar hon sin själsfrände Robert Mapplethorp, som blir hennes följeslagare under de kommande åren, då båda når stor berömmelse och revolutionerar sina konstarter; han som fotograf och hon som musiker och poet.

    Dear Audible - Like the other reviewers, I discovered after my purchase that the only version of this audiobook that you sell is in Swedish. You owe all of us our money back since you failed to clearly inform us of this fact. Why in the world do you not have the English version?

    In October 1886, Edgar Drake receives a strange request from the British War office: he must leave his wife and his quiet life in London to travel to the jungles of Burma, where a rare Erard grand piano is in need of repair. On his journey to Burma, Edgar encounters prophets and thieves, soldiers and tale-spinners, and an enchanting woman as elusive as the surgeon-major who owns the piano will turn out to be. Edgar encounters a place more mysterious and dangerous than he could ever have imagined.

    David says: "The absolute best in reading, a true classic!"
    "long, drawn-out, with little reward"
    Overall

    Beautifully written but the story of an anglo's journey to the "exotic" and colonial east is a bit tired by now. The main character is so vaporous that you don't really care what happens to him.
