The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, first published in 1975, is less a memoir than a collection of riffs and reflections. The private Andy Warhol talks about love, sex, food, beauty, fame, work, money, success; about New York and America; and about himself—his childhood in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, good times and bad times in New York, the explosion of his career in the sixties, and his life among celebrities.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Acute. Accurate. Mr. Warhol’s usual amazing candor. A constant entertainment and enlightenment.” Truman Capote, New York Times bestselling author of In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany’s
“[From] the darling of pop art…With his shock of blonde-white hair and unusual art style, you might think these remembrances would be a real freak show, but instead they’re remarkably tame and straightforward…Would fit nicely into art or biography collections.” Library Journal

Essential reading for the curious

The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, by Andy Warhol, read by Vikas Adam

As most everyone knows, Andy Warhol was not one your most predictable celebrities. Here is essential reading for anyone who either lived during the peak era of Warhol’s rise to fame, or who has become intrigued with his continuing aura of mystic and artistic popularity. Written originally in 1975, this audio rendition breathes fresh life into many of the areas that in the past have only received “sound bite” importance. Here, you’ll experience through the perfect casting of Vikas Adam as the reader, a look into the details of Andy’s esoteric life style, digging deep into his drive to not only fake everybody out, but develop commercial art in a way that he would not only stand alone back then, but continue to be the quintessential pop-art icon of the 21st century. Spoiler alert: to get this close to the mind of what in many people’s eyes is a genius entrapped, is to find oneself reviewing one’s own idiosyncrasies and quirks in the creative area, wondering just how safe it is to be with such attributes. – Odin Roark
