""I'd like to write something as great as 'Pinocchio' or 'Little Women'. I won't say 'Moby Dick' because that's impossible," Patti Smith said. "I'd like to write a book that everybody loves. I'd like to take a picture that someone wants to put above their desk so they can look at it while they're writing a letter or doing whatever they're doing while sitting at their desk. I'd like to do a painting that would astonish people." But books are Patti Smith's deepest love, and writing them is clearly her keenest ambition. Her newest, out next week, is a sort of first salvo before the rollout of the 40th anniversary of "Horses," the 68-year old poet/rocker/visual artist/author's historic first album. @philipmontgomery photographed #PattiSmith at her one-room bungalow in the #Rockaways."
