Mary Woronov arrived in Warhol's Factory on a school trip and never went home. Swimming Underground is the story of the years she spent there in a cavalcade of creative outcasts and over-the-edge experiences. �All the taboos that reigned in the early sixties were taken as sign posts through a narcotic, erotic and destructive urban haze, showing the way to violent discovery. The personal costs were extremely high, but Woronov faces them all with brutal honesty. How did Warhol get started? This is the book that will tell you. This e-book edition includes a special collection of essays written by the author on Andy Warhol and unavailable in print editions.
