Riveting, elegant, humorous—and illustrated by Smith’s signature Polaroids—New York Times bestseller Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times. “A picaresque voyage through Patti Smith’s dreams and life, blending fiction and reality, conjured characters and actual ones”—The New York Times Following a run of new year’s concerts at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore, Patti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz, about to embark on a year of solitary wandering. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland, in which she debates intellectual grifters and spars with the likes of a postmodern Cheshire Cat. Then, in February 2016, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. For Smith—inveterately curious, always exploring, always writing—this becomes a year of reckoning with the changes in life’s gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. Taking us from California to the Arizona desert, from a Kentucky farm to the hospital room of a valued mentor, Smith melds the western landscape with her own dreamscape in a haunting, poetic blend of fact and fiction. As a stranger tells her, “Anything is possible. After all, it’s the Year of the Monkey.” But as Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope for a better world. Named one of NPR’s Best Books of the Year—now including a new chapter, "Epilogue of an Epilogue," and ten new photos—Year of the Monkey “reminds us that despair and possibility often spring from the same source” (Los Angeles Times).

The latest collection of plays from "the female counterpart to Quentin Crisp" (Evening Standard) The Year of the Monkey, originally written for BBC Radio 3, comprises Bonfire Night, in which a daughter takes her sweet revenge; Arsehammers, where a grandson is sure that his grandfather's strange disappearances reveal supernatural powers, The Allotment, in which a quiet community of pensioners create a radical, anarchic commune by mistake, and The Year of the Monkey, where a mother yearns for some bad behaviour to puncture the boredom of her middle-class life. Designs for Living is a modern love story, challenging conventions of identity and sexuality. Sodom reveals Old Testament morality alive and well in middle England. "Claire Dowie is the supreme advocate of rebellion. She debunks conformity, non-conformity - or almost anything which can be defined" - The Stage "She makes you laugh as she kicks you in the teeth" - Guardian
