Well done, Patti Lee.  You were best friends with Robert Mapplethorpe.  You dated Sam Shepard while living in the Chelsea Hotel, the counter-culture mecca of the 60s.  Morrissey, Michael Stipe, and The Library of Congress revere your debut album Horses as a cultural "landmark."  And your book Just Kids won the National Book Award. But have you really accomplished anything if Martha or Christian thinks your book was pretentious navel-gazing? But which host?  Why?!  Find out all of this and more as Martha and Christian get astride Just Kids and ride it for all its worth.
