The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1977 - Art - 241 pages

A loosely formed autobiography by Andy Warhol, told with his trademark blend of irony and detachment

In The Philosophy of Andy Warhol--which, with the subtitle (From A to B and Back Again), is less a memoir than a collection of riffs and reflections--he talks about love, sex, food, beauty, fame, work, money, and success; about New York, America, and his childhood in McKeesport, Pennsylvania; about his good times and bad in New York, the explosion of his career in the sixties, and his life among celebrities.
