You are certainly amiss if you haven’t picked up Patti Smith’s JUST KIDS.  Since reading the banner review on the New York Times. Without sounding like a broken cliché, I’ve not been able to put the book down.  It truly captures the essence of leaving your ground, arriving in New York when the place was teeming with cool and slowly by slowly succeeding. I haven’t read memoirs this good in years…truly.
