'His last great work of art' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

'Cruel, sexy, and sometimes heartbreaking ... Warhol is no neutral observer, but a character in his own right' Newsweek


Andy Warhol kept these diaries faithfully from November 1976 right up to his final week, in February 1987. Written at the height of his fame and success, Warhol records the fun of an Academy Awards party, nights out at Studio 54, trips between London, Paris and New York, and surprisingly even the money he spent each day, down to the cent. With appearances from and references to everyone who was anyone, from Jim Morrison, Martina Navratilova and Calvin Klein to Shirley Bassey, Estee Lauder and Muhammad Ali, these diaries are the most glamorous, witty and revealing writings of the twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Cruel, sexy, and sometimes heartbreaking ... Warhol is no neutral observer, but a character in his own right * Newsweek *
A guilty pleasure, famed for their celebrity anecdotes, their triviality, their lack of engagement...The 90s bestseller that no one admitted having read...In his diaries, as in much else, Warhol was way ahead of the game. -- Nicola Barr * The Observer *
Diaries are his last great work of art, and no less valuable for having been created with even less visible conscious intent than anything else he produced....There's something about them that makes you strongly suspect that editor Pat Hackett has done a very thorough and sympathetic job...There is much to surprise, though...Warhol was a more amusing person, and a more human one, than the mask and blond fright-wig might have let on. The deadpan are by no means immune to human feeling, after all. -- Nicholas Lezard * The Guardian *
