9780141189420: Popism: The Warhol '60s. Andy Warhol and Pat Hackett (Penguin Modern Classics)

A cultural storm swept through the 1960s -- Pop Art, Bob Dylan, psychedelia, underground movies -- and at its centre sat a bemused young artist with silver hair: Andy Warhol. Andy knew everybody (from the cultural commissioner of New York to drug-driven drag queens) and everybody knew Andy. His studio, the Factory, was the place: where he created the large canvases of soup cans and Pop icons that defined Pop Art, where one could listen to the Velvet Underground and rub elbows with Edie Sedgwick and where Warhol himself could observe the comings and goings of the avant-guarde.

Previous paperback published by Harcourt, 1990, 0-15-672960-1

From the Back Cover:

"It is as absorbing as the best telephone gossip, funny yet full of insights." Christopher Isherwood
A cultural storm swept through the 1960s Pop Art, Bob Dylan, psychedelia, happenings, underground movies, the British Invasion and at its center sat a bemused young artist with silver hair: Andy Warhol. Andy knew everybody from the cultural commissioner of New York to drug-driven drag queens and everybody knew Andy.
His studio, The Factory, was the place: where he created the large canvases of soup cans and Pop icons that defined Pop Art, where one could listen to Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground and rub elbows with Edie Sedgwick, where The Chelsea Girls and Warhol s other underground classics were shot, and where Warhol himself could observe the comings and goings of the avant garde.
Anecdotal, funny, and frank, POPism is where Warhol tells it all the ultimate inside story of a decade of cultural revolution.
"POPism reads like a novel . . . Social history of the rarest kind, set down in ultra-sharp focus by someone who helped shape the events he describes." Calvin Tomkins, The New Yorker
Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was a painter, graphic artist, filmmaker, and leader of the Pop Art movement. He was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, and died in New York in 1987.
Pat Hackett worked closely with Andy Warhol for twenty years, coauthoring two books and a screenplay as well as serving as his diarist.
