Andy Warhol



A Novel


A knowing response to James Joyce's Ulysses, a gives us twenty-four hours in the life of Ondine, an actor and Warhol superstar. The book is transcribed from tapes between Warhol and Ondine, reproduced exactly as-is: as in his visual art, Warhol has used spontaneous performance and explicit lack of editing as a device to create a portrait of Warhol's Factory and the artists, superstars and addicts who lived and worked there. Beginning with Odine taking an amphetamine, we then follow these characters as they converse with incisive wit and humour and run through the clubs, coffee shops, hospitals and whorehouses of 1960s Manhattan.
