    One thought on “The Andy Warhol Diaries”

    1. Fascinating Gossipy Elusive Bitchy Warhol Makes me want to buy better shoes 4 stars.UPDATE Better shoes purchased 6 20 12 With slip resistant soles no less New shoes 4.5 stars Book still 4 stars.

    2. I know this book is massive, but I just ate it up because I m so fascinated with him and his life Warhol was well before his time a published diary Ppphhsshhhh The man was blogging and twittering to the public well before anyone else He knew voyeurism of the lives of celebrities sold If Andy were alive today, you know he d be doing a reality tv show.

    3. In my opinion there are two Andy s The one before he got shot and the one that survived that shot But did he I think it affected him emotionally as well as the consistet pain that he lived with But our Andy never grumbled, yet he kept record of his daily life of the 1980 s and they re fascinating His art at the time I think is not that interesting, but his life is another matter.Via Andy we get a view of the jet set as well as the Manhattan citizens of the nightclubs, reataurants, etc Warhol kep [...]

    4. When I was 17, I asked for this book for Christmas My parents never censored or questioned anything I read, so there it was under the tree I dived in It was too overwhelming for a kid I lost interest.However, when I picked it up again years later, I thanked my 17 year old self for being ahead of her time He name drops like nobody s business and he KNEW everybody It is fascinating.This book is MASSIVE, but worth it

    5. This was so great I loved this It took me 6 weeks to read because I only felt like reading it 10 15 pages at a time, but it was so fun to read, for lots of reasons One is that it starts in 1976 and goes right up to Andy s unexpected and sudden death in 1987, and of course those were probably the funnest 12 years of my life, so it s such a fun trip down memory lane just the various news events he mentions in passing in his entries, and the songs and bands and celebrities And Manhattan was really [...]

    6. Absolute tripe an empty intestine If you want to follow the dead adventures of the most infamous famous, here it is in all its stunning flatness Every 15 minutes reading is dull than the last Typical entry Met Mick and Liz at ten I made that up, but it s how the whole thing reads.

    7. The whole situation was funny because Catherine and I didn t know anything about Michael Jackson, really, and he didn t know anything about me he thought I was a poet or something like that So he was asking questions that nobody who knew me would ask like if I was married, if I had any kids, if my mother was alive laughs I told him, She s in a home I haven t peed on any canvases this week This is for the Piss paintings I told Ronnie not to pee when he gets up in the morning to try to hold it unt [...]

    8. La narrativa es muy b sica porque son conversaciones telef nicas con Pat Hackett, quien hizo un muy buen trabajo en reducir un manuscrito de 10 mil p ginas a poco m s de mil con todo y contexto Lo califico como irresistible porque est llena de jugosos chismes y la crueldad innata de Warhol, quien se revela tal y como es porque aqu realmente entra el lector a un espacio tan ntimo que no sobrevivi al mito.No le puse 5 estrellas porque el ritmo llega a ser algo pesado en ocasiones y tienes que hace [...]

    9. Umewhat a greaaat idea I should, like, steal it and use it in my work.OK, enough trying to sound like the subject of the book in a review That doesn t ever really work, does it.I really enjoyed seeing Andy s edited life close up and day to day This is my third time reading the diaries, and the I learn about NYC jet set history of the 70 s and 80 s, the satisfying it becomes I can finally know who he is talking about that Google now exists also makes the diaries even interesting It s also fun [...]

    10. This book like eating popcorn addictive with all the buttery salty tidbits But in fact it is full of priceless insights into the practical working methods of how Andy Warhol worked as a artist and he was a total workaholic It deals with pricing art, selling art and ignoring critics all essential life skills if you re making a living in the arts As a book illustrator I lived in NYC around the time of part of this book I could especially relate to life in the city though I missed most of the night [...]

    11. I came to this book since I was into Velvet Underground, some Warhol movies, artists out of The Factory, etc However I was confronted with one of my own pet peeves people that were born in the early 50s and talk about the decade like they were a teenager or adult like people born in the late 30s talking about WWII like they were vets There ought to be a word for that I was born in 70 and this diary is 76 86 and seems like recollections from my adult life affluent Iranian jet setters, SSTs, Jerry [...]

    12. I was warned off this mammoth book by a previous reader who said it s all just about how much taxi fares and magazines cost However, I think that fellow reader missed the point It is an insightful, funny and painful journey of a man, an artist who regardless of his nerve and creativity struggles with himself and those around him including those from Warhol s diaries making a career out of being close to Andy The words reveal a sensitive and complex human being who, like the rest of us lives in a [...]

    13. fossero i diari dagli esordi, o almeno dal periodo della factory, questo libro sarebbe stato una bomba e invece si comincia dai tardi 70s, quando l epoca d oro si era dissolta e iniziava una nuova epoca al posto del clan della facory che la leggenda ci ha descritto come geniali e bohemien un gruppo di proto yuppies, con giusto basquiat e haring a fare da veri stimoli intellettuali warhol sente l emergere dei nuovi artisti, sente di allontanarsi sempre pi dall arte, si dedica soprattutto ai ritra [...]

    14. when i was younger i used to look up to a lot of people in this book but after reading this 807 page book its so clear that the crowd andy warhol hung out were not particulary nice peoples a big read at 807 pages, and if you can past the tedious little day to day things warhol did this can be an interesting read warhol came into contact with a lot of big name people from calvin klein to halston, from mick jagger to boy georgeom truman capote to tennessee williams one of the highlights of the boo [...]

    15. so i m watching this charlie rose panel discussion with the editors creative directors of interview magazine along with marc jacobs in commemoration of andy s 80th birthday unfortunately, everyone s too busy saying how ahead of his time andy was and what an exemplification of cool andy s retrospective work represents, especially the magazine he started and yet, i can t shake wryly genuine feeling that if andy were here, he couldn t help just saying, oh, you re all so good looking especially you, [...]

    16. I was writing my diary on another blog continusely His record even included his income and outcome on diary It is a part of Andy Warhol management and his effort and his think is from his dilligent habbits everyday I recommend it How about read or write your dairy Good

    17. disturbingly, I ve read this 800 page tome in its entirity than 10 times Sean, this explains why I never got around to so many other books Addictive and comforting, a art piece on minutia and tedium and celebrity and mental illness and lonliness than a memoir.

    18. I have meticulously recorded every single cent I ve spent for the last eleven years in a series of Wilson Jones accounting tablets And that s because of this book Andy s weird compulsion made complete sense to me.

    19. Have to read just a couple of pages at a time or it becomes nauseating I read only ten pages at time Interesting peek into Andy his world I like what it revealed about the culture times his associates as much, if not than what it revealed about Andy.

    20. I m going through an Andy Warhol Phase Absolutely loved his diaries They are snarky AND full of heartfelt wisdom He was a genius.

    21. Just read the introduction and the first couple of chapters this seems incredibly mundane and probably would only be interesting if you re a die hard Warhol fan.

    22. I have a mild fascination with Andy Warhol and got the idea to read his diaries from Andy Cohen s diaries Its a lot over 1100 pages a lot Its great both to get insight into Andy Warhol s everyday life and his personality It also gives a glimpse of celebrity life in the 70s and 80s Definitely a book you can put down for awhile and come back to and not have missed anything.

    23. WARHOLS MIDAS TOUCH WAS THE SECRET OF HIS SUCCESS , NOT FOR PAINTING , NOR FOR PRINTING , NEITHER ABOUT MUSIC , BUT TO KNOW EXACTLY WHO , WHERE AND WHEN TO CONVINCE TRENDING OR BETTER SAID , MANIPULATING THE INTEREST NICE PEOPLE RICH SHOULD HAVE OVER CERTAIN ARTIST , PERFORMER , PLAYER HIS GURU LIKE APPROACH TO THE AVANT GARDE , AND THE BEST WORD OF MOUTH PUBLICITY I COULD THINK OF , CAME OUT FROM THE FABRIC , VELVET UNDERGROUND AS THE CHERRY ON TOP OF HIS CAKE , AND THE EXTRAORDINARY SENSE OF A [...]

    24. I have spent 16 months in the company of Andy Warhol and the company of friends , employees and acquaintances This book has sat in my loo and I ve read a few entries most days It has felt a bit like Groundhog Day as the same things happen over and over again If you tried to read it in bigger chunks, I imagine you might be bored out of your mind.This isn t really a diary It was all phoned through to Pat Hackett the editor the morning after the day before It was started as a way to keep a record o [...]

    25. this is probably my favourite 3 star book i can t say i loved it, i didn t devour it, i don t have passages underlined, i won t revisit it but the feeling of reading it will remain.he says a lot of precise, observant and funny things, but the philosophy of andy warhol has all of that and covered and yeah it s nice seeing the names of famous people, but who didn t know that andy warhol hung out with everyone in new york if you didn t, this will be a rough start get your google ready the cute jok [...]

    26. I m not sure I m going to finish this book not only is it huge, but reading night after night about the endless parties and bickering is wearing me out than trying to find a comfortable position to actually read the book Lots of drugs, lots of talk about sex, but mostly it s about who s who and how they interacted with Warhol or he them Name dropping in an obscure way, since he never meant for these notes phone calls to be published He s catty, mean, observant, honest, silly, and he s sleeping [...]

    27. Warhol has always fascinated me, for two reasons 1 his prescient takes on art e.g the soup cans and celebrity In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes and 2 the fact that he was at the epicenter of and or witness to many of the 20th century s most important pop culture happenings, yet even when surrounded by superstars and the cultural elite, he seemed almost painfully alone The diaries were fascinating reading for me, often as much as for what Andy doesn t say as for what he does M [...]
