    Singer, poet and memoirist Patti Smith gives us an insight into her creative process with Devotion, the latest in the ‘Why I Write’ series from Yale University. Her ‘slim meditation’ on creativity combines diary vignettes, poems and a short story. Smith wanders through Paris’ cafes, visits a cemetery and encounters dévouement (devotion) inscribed on the headstone of a girl who loved horses. And so she writes about the sacrifice required to do what you love. Smith’s voice is like snow falling, soft and mystical. This privileged view of the ‘alchemy’ of producing art begs a second reading, and will delight anyone who seeks to interrogate the mystery of creativity.
