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.
