It was nice to see Bruce Springsteen on Jimmy Fallon giving "props" to Patti for making a hit of "Because the Night". That song was my introduction to Patti. An admiration that still endures through her art. Thanks for posting, I'll certainly get the book as I was a fan of Robert's as well!

Love her, she has this endearing innocence and exuberance in interviews, she's very unpretentious which is kind of rare for a NY City Rocker! :)

I looked through the book when it came out, the photos inside are absolutely amazing, I read a bit of it at the bookstore, so it's been on my list of books to get when finances allow. :) Very happy for Patti winning the National Book Award!!
