Meet the Author

Valerie Solanas: Valerie Solanas was a radical feminist playwright and social propagandist best known as the author of the SCUM Manifesto, which she self-published and sold on the streets of New York. In 1968, she was arrested after an assassination attempt on the life Andy Warhol, and imprisoned for three years. Deemed a paranoid schizophrenic by the state, once out of jail, Solanas stalked Warhol for several more years, before eventually leaving New York. She died alone and in relative obscurity in 1988 in San Francisco, leaving behind a sheaf of typewritten pages that her mother burned after her death. Solanas was immortalized by actress Lili Taylor in the 1996 film I Shot Andy Warhol.
