By Andy Warhol, Pat Hackett
This overseas literary sensation turns the highlight on some of the most influential and debatable figures in American tradition. full of surprising observations in regards to the lives, loves, and careers of the wealthy, recognized, and great, Warhol's magazine is forever enjoyable and fascinating.
Spanning the mid-1970s till quite a few days sooner than his dying in 1987, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES is a compendium of the greater than twenty thousand pages of the artist's diary that he dictated day-by-day to Pat Hackett. In it, Warhol offers us the last word behind the curtain go to virtually every little thing that went on within the world-both low and high. He hangs out with "everybody": Jackie O ("thinks she's so grand she does not even owe it to the general public to have one other nice marriage to someone big"), Yoko Ono ("We dialed F-U-C-K-Y-O-U and L-O-V-E-Y-O-U to determine what occurred, we had a lot fun"), and "Princess Marina of, i suppose, Greece," besides art-world rock stars Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, and Keith Haring.
Warhol had whatever to claim approximately everybody who crossed his direction, no matter if it was once Lou Reed or Liberace, Patti Smith or Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra or Michael Jackson. a real cultural artifact, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES quantities to a portrait of an artist-and an era-unlike the other.
