I'd say only a couple of Smith songs, the first Television LP, one or two Richard Hell songs and the Mapplethorpe pics only stand up (literally in some cases). They appear to me now as a rather thin third generation after the original Beats and the Warhol/Velvets scene. So I'm not particularly moved to check out her autobiography.
