      I am not looking forward to this Reviewing has become a compulsion of sorts, and this time it won t be fun Let me soften the blow for myself with this preface Patti Oh, Patti You are an inspirational, resplendent banshee of a human being, a punchy, lithe little poet, a galvanizing artist, and a generally kick ass b tch For this reason, it is with knuckles in teeth that I make this statement I thought your book was kinda trite I didn t want to, really I hope this isn t a deal breaker, as I still [...]

      This is a small beautiful book, one I would choose to own for frequent reads Her inclusion of the Hanuman book concept is illustrative of it s predictive talismanic power I would love to carry it around as a little prayer book There is something in her words that resonates strongly, moves me, and I found the reading of this small volume completely soul quenching and calming It is an early morning with birdsong and rain threatening which seems the perfect backdrop for a fall into her pages just a [...]

      Patti s early years in prose Some startling images bat wings crackling in a barn fire Some wonderful reveries that start in listless cafes and drift into souks selling blood red stones Stories about her infant sister s sickness, her great grandmother s imperious non regard, her dog s mysterious death Also some commonplaces and generalizations that dilute the poetic intensity, but overall this is a very companionable book Handsomely designed and interspersed with photos, too.

      This new edition was published in 2011 It just came to my attention when knittingtastic, a UK person working in knitting technical editing, posted book on her Instagram feed I immediately ordered it As a knitter and Patti Smith fan, I was intrigued While this book is mostly poems, it also included essays My favorite essay was her story of her dog Bambi, her constant companion when she was young It was sad, though not tragic.The cover Shepherdess with Her Flock , a painting by Millet, may appear [...]

      Dieses B chlein enth lt Erinnerungen an Patti Smiths Kindheit, die interessant und sprachlich sch n zu lesen sind Nachdem ich erst diese Woche M Train gelesen habe, muss ich aber auch sagen, dass diese Sammlung kurzer Texte nicht mit ihrem Roman mithalten kann.

      I m not a specialist when it comes to poetry I use a very simplified key to evaluate it for myself if it moves me, I like it, if it doesn t, I forget about it the moment I finish the last line The situation with poetic prose is very similar in my case If I catch myself formulating thoughts subconsciously in a way the text of the book was written, if it plays again and again in my brain I m enchanted Unfortunately, this is not the case with the tiny book by Patti Smith There are a few pretty imag [...]

    14. Andrea Paterson on said:

      I couldn t get into this book While it was about childhood it lacked wonder somehow The poetry slipped often into the world of dreams and I wanted to be overcome there by shimmering images, but it never happened The idea of the Woolgatherers, small people collecting tufts of wool from the brambles in the dead of night, was alluring, but the idea didn t take flight I think its possible that another person will love this book, but sadly I did not and was a bit disappointed.

      Woolgathering contains some of the most poetic prose I ve ever read It s like a magic carpet ride through Smith s memories impressionsa Van Gogh painted with words If you do not have imagination , don t read it I envy admire the freedom with which Smith uses language This read is magicue poetry ue art.

      Mostly lovely memory and fantasy yarn by Patti Smith, musician and poet This was a Christmas gift from my daughter Rima, and a quick read at an opportune time.

      Questo libro e l eccezione che conferma la regola della perfezione di Patti Smith sia quando scrive sia quando canta.

      Bonne introduction aux pens es po tiques et vivantes de Patti Smith, mais pas au m me niveau des classiques modernes comme M train et Just Kids.

      Another random library discovery Initially I was mostly curious if it was in fact that Patti Smith , and yes, it is Patti Smith of punk music fame A really beautiful collection of poetic stories mixed with matching photographs Mostly from her childhood but some from her travels in India and France.She introduces the stories with Everything contained in this little book is true, and written just like it was The writing of it drew me from my strange torpor and I hope that in some measure it will f [...]

      I read this little book in one sitting, on my ferry commute to work I like this because it was written when she was living in Detroit with her husband and children, a retreat from public life and public work, but certainly not from her art visual, poetic, musical, and otherwise Yes, it s different from her music lyric compositions, and it s different from the straightforward but still magical memoir she wrote of her early artistic life with Robert Mapplethorpe, Just Kids This one has moments th [...]

    24. Jaime (Twisting the Lens) on said:

      The Patti Smith that we so often envision is the one of intensity and power, ranting relentlessly onstage She is the Patti that is the embodiment of punk, and is busy serving up rebellion and telling the man how it is For hardcore fans and followers, there is also a Patti that is the intelligent Baudelaire quoting troubadour She is the one that has seen so much and shares it all freely for others to learn.In Woolgathering, we are given a look into the creation and life of this powerhouse that d [...]

    25. Bruce on said:

      Smith remembers her childhood and her childhood fantasies in New Jersey One of those fantasies were of the people she could hear, but never see in an empty field she passed on long leisurely walks with her brother and sister She thought of them as the woolgatherers I believed they were there, the people I could hear them, now and then, murmuring and whistling as if behind a wall of cotton I could hear them, but I could never make out the language they were speaking nor the melodies they were wea [...]

    26. M. Sarki on said:

      Patti Smith is a talent beyond measure Woolgathering is obviously an early work but it is evident that she could write, that she certainly possessed rhythm, and she was seriously engaged in life and all it had to offer her There are some chapters miles above others in their quality, but the book as a whole did read as a prose poem and I found it personal than artistic Deserving of only three stars in respect to literary technique, I instead gave this book the instructive four because I really l [...]

    27. Toolshed on said:

      I can t stress enough how much I enjoyed this It s compact, it s dreamy, it s sketchy just as one would expect memories of childhood to be and yet Smith managed to imbue the whole book with a poetic quality which is entirely her own Innocent, almost naive reminiscences about childhood alternate with dreamlike excursions into the mind space of a young girl striving to find something in life Dripping with emotion.
