Andy Warhol: A Biography

'“Throughout, Koestenbaum’s engagements with Warhol’s life and art, tinged with poetic brilliance and surgical dispassion, feel very high-stakes indeed, making this book an engrossing battle of wills.”  —Publishers Weekly “This is a portrait of the artist’s heart and mind, a biography of his insides, the impulses that drove him to create.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “[Koestenbaum] gives us a Warhol who is ineffably sad but heroic too: a man full of bravado, patience, energy and devotion to work, to making things. It’s a book that should tempt both those generally familiar with Andy Warhol and, even more, young people who have trouble imagining how popular art can challenge the status quo.” —Los Angeles Times'
