Leaving Cornell University in 1964, Woronov joined the human odds and ends that congregated at Andy Warhol's famed Factory in New York City's SoHo. She soon found herself part of the stage show for Warhol's rock band creation, the Velvet Underground, and survived primarily on amphetamines. Her Factory peak, however, was her starring role in Warhol's infamous film, Chelsea Girls (1967). Woronov tells her version of those years in a highly personal and impressionistic style, befitting the author of the short story collection Wake for the Angels (LJ 9/1/94). Though the usual cast of Warhol characters makes their appearance here (International Velvet, Ondine, Nico, Billy Name, etc.), the author's account is not for those seeking a history of the Factory years, for which Ultra Violet's Famous for 15 Minutes: My Years with Andy Warhol (LJ 11/15/88) or Nat Finkelstein's Andy Warhol: The Factory Years (St. Martin's, 1989. o.p.) provide a more reliable chronicle. An optional purchase for most collections.-Martin R. Kalfatovic, Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, D.C.
