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.

Warhol is a fascinating guy with some pretty crazy ideas. The last chapter alone, in which he expounds upon the fine art of underwear shopping, makes this book worth reading. Or at least skimming. Chapter titles include "How Andy Puts His Warhol On," "Death: All About It," and "Underwear Power: What I Do on Saturday When My Philosophy Runs Out." Hilarious.

Clever quotes from a clever man. For some reason Edie Sedgewick isn't named but referred to as Taxi. Reeks of Camp. Andy says if he's reincarnated he wants to come back as Donald Duck because his sailor suit is so cute.

A wonderful quick read of 'Andyism's'. He was a most thought provoking person, terribly shy and very observant of human nature. Enjoy this wonderful little book.Witty...
