Review: a by Andy Warhol
I did not enjoy this novel, because it isn't something that is necessarily read for enjoyment. As an insight into the lives of Warhol's superstars and various hangers on, it is entertaining in its own absurd way. There are some truly strange conversations. By the end, I was not surprised that many of the Warhol superstars who appeared early on were nowhere to be found, that Odine's mental state seemed to be rapidly declining (and his drug addiction increasing,) and I was beginning to hate Drella/Warhol more and more for the almost sociopathic way he was recording everything on tape. As for the a, I suspect it was supposed to stand for amphetamine, but it could just as easily stand for Andy, Art, or well ... arsehole considering that was what most of the people in the book seem to be.
Insightful, but not really recommended.
