Warhol sees right through the phonies and hustlers who are on the prowl constantly; the "kids" (as he calls them) who stop at nothing in order to make it big in the NY art world. This book is not just about Andy Warhol; it's a Time Capsule of life in the glamorous and high-stakes world of Art and Celebrities...better than reading a history book on the late 1970s and 1980s.
Occasionally, Warhol comes across as a sad little figure: he is sincerely bewildered and perplexed and terrified by life. He was incapable of deep thinking. At other times, Warhol comes across as unsavory, cold, grasping, a user of people. Once in a while, I have to give him a hand for achieving so much success despite so many obstacles. If it wasn't for his artistic talent, Warhol would have been selling women's shoes in some Manhattan store. I know a lot more about Warhol than before reading his diaries but I do not like him more because of it.
Warhol's diaries were interesting enough for me to finish. There's enough gossip and catty put-downs here to make it a page turner.
As an Outsider Artist, I find these personal stories fascinating!
