9780060164195: Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close up

Written by a former editor of Warhol's celebrity-celebrating Interview magazine and packed with names, this hard-hitting memoir presents an insider's look at the "Pope of Pop Art," Andy Warhol (1928-1987), whose eclectic oeuvre is comparable to Picasso's or Pollock's in its impact on modern art and culture. While examining Warhol's personality, struggles, and achievements, this book presents its subject with a clarity that is both unsparing and compassionate, disillusioned and inspired. Holy Terror invites readers to revisit the sex, drugs, parties, discos, and New York art scene that dominated the 1970s and 1980s. Colacello's memoir is an acutely perceived portrait of the artist who radicalized the ways in which society views art.

Review:

By far the best of Andy Warhol's portraits, including his own. A must for anyone even vaguely interested in Andy's life and times. -- George Plimpton Of the reminiscences that have appeared to date, Colacello's Holy Terror is certainly the best-written and most killingly observed. Dissecting Warhol with an amiable but sharp wit, Mr. Colacello also manages to give him more of a human dimension than anyone else has suceeded in doing. The New York Times Gossipy, gutsy, and gripping... a work of startling immediacy and convincing honesty. As clearly as he captures those glitzy, gritty years, Colacello is even sharper in tracing his enigmatic subject's psyche. Crisply written, well-organized, this is a first-rate sweeping memoir of an astonishing cultural phenomenon. Kirkus Reviews Perceptive, intuitive, and amusing... If you think you've read everything about Andy you better at least add Bob Colacello's. It's personal, candid, and compelling. -- Liz Smith New York Daily News

About the Author:
