Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The former editor of Andy Warhol's Interview magazine, Colacello has an insider's story to tell. This book is as bitchy and packed with names as its readers could want. The Andy Warhol Factory is described (not surprisingly) as an exploitative place where Andy got richer and richer while his drones worked harder and harder. Colacello's straightforward chronology of working and partying in Warhol's circle is tinged by his bitterness over a heavy workload and little pay at the Factory. His tone captures perfectly the self-obsessed philosophy that drove Warhol, his hangers-on, and the subculture of sex, drugs, parties, discos, and the New York art scene of the 1970s and early 1980s. Recommended for academic, art, and public libraries. Photos not seen. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 2/1/90.

Review

“Killingly observed. Dissecting Warhol with an amiable but sharp wit, Mr. Colacello also manages to give him more of a human dimension than anyone else.” —The New York Times

“By far the best of Andy Warhol’s portraits, including his own.” —George Plimpton

"A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the genius master-minding of fame, the artistic value in what was derided as commercial, and the iconic personalities, featuring Sylvia Miles, Paul Morrissey, Fran Lebowitz, Brigid Berlin, Mick Jagger, Diane von Furstenberg, and Paulette Goddard, among the many names dropped in these pages, Holy Terror is a fascinating record of an art era American Dream." —The Huffington Post

"An entertaining, hilarious book. . . . Widely regarded as the essential look at life inside the Warhol parade." —Flavorwire

“Compelling. . . . Perceptive, intuitive, and amusing.” —New York Daily News
 
“This is a first-rate sweeping memoir of an astonishing cultural phenomenon. . . . Gossipy, gutsy, and gripping . . . A work of startling immediacy and convincing honesty.” —Kirkus Reviews
