About the Author

Wayne Koestenbaum has published over a dozen books on such subjects as hotels, Harpo Marx, humiliation, Jackie Onassis, and opera. His latest book of prose is "My 1980s & Other Essays" (2013); his latest book of poetry is "Blue Stranger with Mosaic Background" (2012). Koestenbaum s first solo exhibition of paintings took place at White Columns gallery in New York during the fall of 2012. He is a distinguished professor of English at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York."


"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
