about

A loosely formed autobiography by Andy Warhol, told with his trademark blend of irony and detachment In The Philosophy of Andy Warhol -which, with the subtitle (From A to B and Back Again)," is less a memoir than a collection of riffs and reflections-he talks about love, sex, food, beauty, fame, work, money, and success; about New York, America, and his childhood in McKeesport, Pennsylvania; about his good times and bad in New York, the explosion of his career in the sixties, and his life among celebrities."
Andy Warhol, a painter and graphic artist, also produced a significant body of film work, including his famous Chelsea Girls. He was equally well known in the late sixties and early seventies as resident host at his studio, The Factory, where one could listen to Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground and rub elbows with Edie Sedgwick.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from don't have to be an art buff or culture addict to enjoy Warhol's genius in this book. Andy Warhol is the famous alchemist of reality, forming the most trite, everyday ideas and images and altering them into genuine thought and innovation. On many levels, this book is just a collection of autobiographical text, commenting on people and places within Warhol's social olympia. But after the gossip and celebrity status is digested, the reader is endowed with a substantial, original outlook on sex, money, art, and many other of life's components. It's a fabulous read, with the 'tastiness' of a Vonnegut and packed with irresistably sarcastic humor. This book is a step above an autobiography. It is the essence of Warhol's addictive personality and a journey into the mind of a wonderfully eccentric human being. You don't have to be an art buff or culture addict to enjoy Warhol's genius in this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Andy's Philosophy This is a deep, introspective book of Andy Warhol observing life- his own and that which surrounds him. Just like Andy, the writing is very sensitive in nature and explores topics such as: childhood, love, beauty, fame, death, success and underwear. If you ever want to know more about one of the most influential artists of our time, this book is a peep-hole into his life.
