Read full description of the books:
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 totally want to be your Gloria, K-R-I-S-T-I.
This book reminded me of those facebook posts that my mother is always making fun of, as they are one of her more prominent pet-peeves:
"Vegan biscuits and gravy for breakfast, yummy!"
"The BF just bought me some new UGGS. Supes cute!"
"Cuddling up with the kittie and Buffy reruns tonight. Blessed."
You know the ones. Well, this book is a lot of that sort of thing. If your whole life has just been a long wait for excruciating details about Patti's average idle day, please let me assuage you: she likes mint tea, Jean Cocteau films, and walks in the forest; she has a newspaper clipping of Fernando Pessoa on her wall, and she never wears socks; no showers for Patti, it's baths all the way, baby. That is how most of this book reads: tedious, numbing, and forgettable.
Did I mention it's kinda pretentious, too? The metaphors and imagery presented mostly feel either superfluous and tired or ham-handed bordering on completely nonsensical. Some of the dream-world stuff is lovely, though, but I should admit right here and now that I am a sucker for that sort of thing. I loved drifting off into the end of the world parts of Hardboiled Wonderland and the sci-fi realm constructed in The Blind Assassin. Certain things just make lucid the memories of fantasias built by a little girl who would wander around in golden wheat fields searching for Pepe Le Pew's tail, sat in a corner of the living room for hours crafting elaborate friendships and lively conversations between her talking hands, and who could never seem to watch The Neverending Story enough times. I like remembering that little girl, because she tells me to lighten up. She lets me know it's okay. She reminds me that it is important to dream big dreams sometimes. The best parts of Woolgathering summoned that child, albeit in a flickering, muffled, smeary way lacking any sort of resounding echo. Too bad.
I should probably give this thing 2 stars for "it was okay" considering that's exactly how I feel, but instead I am going to give it 3 stars and simply express my opinion in words: it was okay. Why the 3 stars, then? It wasn't 2-star torture, and sprinkled bits of the prose shook away some of the soot collected over my long-lost childhood wonder. Besides, if anyone has earned the rights to a little pretension, it's Patti fucking Smith.
