Overview

The Andy Warhol Diaries by Andy Warhol, Pat Hackett

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the bestselling classic is introduced to a new generation-with an added preface by Warhol's diarist and long-time friend, Pat Hackett, contemplating Warhol's lasting cultural impact.

This international literary sensation turns the spotlight on one of the most influential and controversial figures in American culture. Filled with shocking observations about the lives, loves, and careers of the rich, famous, and fabulous, Warhol's journal is endlessly fun and fascinating.

Spanning the mid-1970s until just a few days before his death in 1987, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES is a compendium of the more than twenty thousand pages of the artist's diary that he dictated daily to Pat Hackett. In it, Warhol gives us the ultimate backstage pass to practically everything that went on in the world-both high and low. He hangs out with "everybody": Jackie O ("thinks she's so grand she doesn't even owe it to the public to have another great marriage to somebody big"), Yoko Ono ("We dialed F-U-C-K-Y-O-U and L-O-V-E-Y-O-U to see what happened, we had so much fun"), and "Princess Marina of, I guess, Greece," along with art-world rock stars Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, and Keith Haring.

Warhol had something to say about everyone who crossed his path, whether it was Lou Reed or Liberace, Patti Smith or Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra or Michael Jackson. A true cultural artifact, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES amounts to a portrait of an artist-and an era-unlike any other.

If you feel the need to know how much Mr. Andy Warhol tipped cab drivers etc... then this book is for you. Perhaps... a great coffee table book to glance through, but not a great read

Could not put this book down so interesting and funny
Ryan Morris More than 1 year ago
If you already like Andy, you will love his daily observations told with trademark dry wit and thrifty use of words. It must have been pretty cool to be Andy Warhol and this book chronicles his point of view during the height of his celebrity rather than his more prolific younger years as an artist. Expect some pretty hilarious celebrity gossip and find out which actress has B.O. The book comes to an abrupt and sad end but serves as the most important "autobiography" of this very special 20th century philosopher and artist.

Not nearly as interesting as I hoped it would be. I got about 60 pages in and had to stop. The book's huge, which makes it impossible to carry around, and it's so long that it intimidates you from the second you bring it home. Put it on your coffee table and flip through it when you're bored.

I loved this book, and it is long. Bridget Jones and Andy would have hit it off. Very funny and entertaining. Yes he was weird but that's what makes him so interesting. You start to feel like Andy is a friend by the end of this book.

Not exactly a book that you read from cover to cover, but it is a fun coffee table book. "What was Andy Warhol doing this day 30-some years ago? LETS FIND OUT." It can be fun for that.

How silly I was to read these pages (that's the brilliance of Andy Warhol). It is an extreme, and boring, but non-boring look into an insecure, but very secure business man, and person. The Brilliance of Andy Warhol.
