Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni recounts her experience working in Andy Warhol's Studio, and explores Warhol's influence - during his life and forever after - on the art world, pop culture, society, and fashion, and how his iconic status gave rise to some of our most influential tastemakers today. From the behind-the-scenes conflict and disagreements over his personal possessions and art inventory, to the record-breaking auction of his belongings and publication of his diaries, Fraser-Cavassoni had a front seat.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An endlessly quotable romp that captures the melancholy and magnificence of Warhol's final days and legacy...[After Andy] masterfully winds through anecdotes, scenes and interviews with scores of Warhol's associates, acquaintances and admirers. It is breezy without ever feeling light, channeling Warhol's enigmatic presence."
-Nick Ripatrazone, Rolling Stone

"In this superfun memoir, Fraser-Cavassoni leads the reader on her adventures as a blossoming London "It" girl, and her encounters with movers and shakers from the art, fashion and celebrity worlds orbiting Warhol, with the visionary Pop artist serving as the linking thread....Many of the memoir's anecdotes...are laugh-out-loud funny."

-Artnet.com

"[An] engaging look at Warhol's social matrix from the early days of the Factory to the impact of his personal aesthetic on art, fashion and popular culture decades beyond his death...a serious and worthwhile addition to Warhol studies because of the wealth of knowledge [Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni] brings to the subject."

-Kirkus

"With poignancy and lots of laughs, Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni takes us straight to the heart of celebrity culture-by way of 1970s London, 1980s New York, and 1990s Paris. After Andy is a must-read for anyone who loves art, fashion, and great gossip!"
-Kate Betts, author of My Paris Dream

"Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni's riveting eyewitness memoir captures Warhol's inner circle in the aftermath of the artist's sudden death with insight, factuality, compassion and fabulous high style."
-Bob Colacello, author of Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up

"As a visual artist obsessed with all things Warhol, I dove into After Andy looking for tales of the Factory and found the rich and deftly reported memoir of an honest and reluctant 'it girl.' Fraser-Cavassoni's laser-sharp memory and attention to detail-fashion, interiors, conversation-make her story of searching for herself through the lens and legacy of Andy Warhol an utter joy to read."

-Rupert Everett, author of Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins

-Toby Young, author of How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
