M-Train by Patti Smith

Patti Smith has an ability to translate her thinking into luscious writing that's meditative and deeply philosophical. You end up ruminating with her, making this read contemplative and slow-moving.

Smith takes us through her daily routine, poetic in its ordinariness. She invites us into her dreams, as she journeys through obscure metaphors that transcend into real life. Her memories of travels are represented in chapters that seem like stills from her treasured polaroids.

M Train isn't as riveting as her first book Just Kids, but that's because it's a different read, weaving together the past and present in a way that makes you question your own.
