About the Author

“[A] fascinating study of Warhol’s rise from commercial artist to the most celebrated painter and filmmaker in 1960s America.”(Richard Dorment, New York Review of Books)

Editorial Reviews

?A sharp-eyed chronicle of those unsettled days in the early sixties when everything was up for grabs. . . . Pulling back the curtain, this fascinating book takes the true measure of Andy Warhol, the pale, enigmatic Wizard of Odd.? (Fred Goodman, author of The Mansion on the Hill: Dylan, Young, Geffen, Springsteen and the Head-on Collision of Rock and Commerce)
