Albertine Sarrazin

Not possible for me to say how much of this is Sarrazin’s original and how much the astrsgalo. Albertine Sarrazin had a remarkable life, and i love the look of her, and the Patti Smith introduction to this book is great, but Written by Sarrazin while serving time behind bars this semi-autobiographical novel tells the story of Anne, who after jumping to freedom from prison fractures her ankle and is found by the side of the road by Julian who also happens to be on the runthey asrtagalo together, quickly form a bond, and romance soon follows.

Patti Smith, who brought Astragal to the attention of New Directions, contributes an enthusiastic introduction to one of her favorite writers. Towards the end of the book, I felt she was holding back, which made her appear callous. Sarrazin’s ending was certainly tragic; she died from a failed liver operation.
