Just Kids (Swedish Edition) | [Patti Smith]

Just Kids (Swedish Edition)

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.

Publisher's Summary

”Det var sommaren då Coltrane dog. Sommaren då Jimi Hendrix satte eld på sin gitarr och Kina sprängde en vätebomb. Det var uppror i Newark och protestmarscher mot Vietnamkriget. Världen stod på tröskeln till en ny tid. Det var kärlekens sommar. Det var sommaren som förändrade mitt liv. Det var sommaren då jag mötte Robert."

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. Just Kids är både en innerlig kärleksförklaring till en älskad vän och en levande skildring av New Yorks dynamiska kulturliv i början av 70-talet. Här får vi möta en rad legendariska författare, musiker och konstnärer: Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Andy Warhol, Bob Dylan, William S. Burroughs, Tom Verlaine för att bara nämna några.

Please note: This audiobook is in Swedish.

    "This book is in Swedish"

    I hear it's a very good book. And if your Swedish, you will certainly be able to enjoy it. If, on the other hand, you're just quickly adding it to your cart, and you don't happen to speak Swedish, it would be useless to you? Why doesn't Audible offer an English reading?

    "Why is this book in Swedish?"

    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?

    "Just Kids"

    It's irresponsible for Audible not to signal that this book is in Swedish.
    It's a misleading and bait-and-switch posting. Wasted points.

    Thanks Audible. Why is this file not labeled as not being in English? Thanks for the useless download.

    "NOT IN ENGLISH!"

    This book is in Swedish, not English. It was my Christmas present, and what a disappointment when we went to listen. Neither of us understands a word of Swedish. Don't know why the listing is in English without a notice that the book is not. Would love a reimbursement!!!

    "Not English!"

    I couldn't possibly rate this book as I don't understand English. It should be in bold script across the book title!

    "Me too!"

    I bought this book without reading the review or description because I knew I wanted to listen to it, so imagine how surprised I was to find myself listening to Swedish! I think Audible should credit those of us who were misguided - an indication should be made in the title.

    "DECEPTIVE"

    I don't speak Swedish. It should have been made more clear that this was a translation of a book into a foreign language. Audible had better give me my credit back.

    "IN SWEDISH"

    I am sad to be adding my name to the list of people who were DUPED. THIS BOOK IS IN SWEDISH. I WANT MY 33.00 back.
