In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the classic bestseller is introduced to a new generation—with an updated prologue by Warhol's longtime diarist, Pat Hackett, exploring Warhol's lasting cultural impact. This sensational national bestseller turns the spotlight on one of the most influential and controversial figures of American culture. Filled with shocking facts about the lives and loves 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, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES condenses more than 20,000 pages of Warhol's diary, which he dictated daily to his longtime diarist, Pat Hackett. In it, Warhol tells of parties attended, champagne drunk, cabs taken, and tips left. 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, and Keith Haring. From Lou Reed and Patti Smith to Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, and Dolly Parton, Warhol had something to say about everyone who crossed his path. A true cultural artifact, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES is a portrait of an artist-and an era-unlike any other.
