The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol is the first oral biography of the artist. First published in 1971, and pitched against the colorful backdrop of the 1960s, it assembles a prismatic portrait of one of modern art's least knowable artists during the early years of his fame. This is perhaps the most revealing portrait of Andy Warhol, being composite instead of singular; each interviewee offers a piece of the puzzle that was Warhol. Written by Village Voice and Interview cofounder John Wilcock, the book is beautifully designed in a bright, Warholian palette.
