It makes for fascinating listening...

Patti Smith has made a sparkling appearance on Marc Maron's WTF podcast.

The paperback edition of her 2019 book Year Of The Monkey is out now, so the legendary punk poet completed a chat on the podcast.

The free-flowing conversation with Marc Maron touches on a number of fascinating issues, including her friendship with fellow Chelsea Hotel resident William S. Burroughs.

Also on a Beat generation tip, Patti reveals Allen Ginsberg once tried to chat her up, explaining that she was "a very pretty boy".

As always with Patti Smith, it makes for a superb listen. Online now, the podcast follows her award of the 2020 PEN Literary Service Award, given annually to an author who writes about “the human condition.”
