a a novel By Andy Warhol Well I've spent most of this year wading through this so called novel by Warhol. While this book sounded interesting when I bought it, it turned out to be the most insipid book I've ever read or seen. Whoever told Andy Warhol he could write did America a grave disservice. This isn't even a real novel!

Anyone who is interested in Andy Warhol's interviews and written work knows that he had a penchant for giving seemingly inane off the cuff anwers to any question posed to him. The beauty of his quips is that they are often amazingly insightful whilst simultaneously maddeningly flippant. Interestingly, in books such as 'Popism' and 'A Philosophy...' we are told that Andy's input was minimal and that we mustn't consider them to actually 'be' by him, even though in these and in the Warhol artwork that others claim as their own, Andy's genius seems to permeate them.
One of the things that makes this book, 'Andy Warhol's America' interesting is that it leaves little doubt that virtually everything in it is from Andy himself (except perhaps the introductory paragraph which has the characteristics of someone speaking for Andy) because the material is just not commercial or avant garde enough for anyone to wish to claim it.
This is a book of snaps by Andy Warhol which nominally pertain to various chapter headings: People, All-stars, Natural History, Vogue, etc. Accompanying these is commentary by Andy. Here, you will witness the only example I am aware of in which Andy makes unequivocal political statements, allowing us a glimpse of his world view. While he is not strident, he is also not coy as in the McGovern political campaign poster he made in the 1970's. This really seems to be Andy's voice.
In the photographs one is constantly wowed by the effective use he makes of his little poloroid: amazing really. He has a knack for seeing the ironic or dramatic or unusual and capturing it. Especially gratifying are the shots which appear to be 'shot from the hip' yet somehow incorporate the oddly juxtaposed elements into an effective framework that 'gets' the subject he is shooting. Perhaps because one knows they are by the great Andy Warhol one finds the photographs captivating enough so that one wouldn't miss the accompanying text and perhaps this is why few of them contain identified subjects. It is also amusing that Andy had a better eye for capturing the male physique than he had for the female.
I rate this only three stars because the production seems more like a magazine than a soft-bound art book. This may have been intentional, to wit creating a 'Vogue' magazine view of America or it may be attributable to the general decline in print production values that American bookdom was laboring under when this book was made. Whatever it is, this books loses a star or two for being less well-made than one would expect at the price.

I am an artist, my last year of highschool my art teacher told me to research about Andy Warhol in the hopes it may spark creativity ideas into my work. My first year of attending art college (2 and + half years ago) the first book I found in the library was this and since then I didn't want to give it back. This book became an ultra source of inspiration for me and and I didn't really know who Andy Warhol really was and about his work until I read this. I'm extremely big on pop culture and didn't know how much I would related to Andy's work. I searched many book stores/dealers for the longest to find it but couldn't or the price was to high for my budget. The condition of the book for the price I bought to for from this dealer (HookedonBooksPA) was beyond my expectation! It seems to be read once and way better condition than when I read it from the library! I want to thank you HookedonBooksPA very much!!! I appreciated the little thank you note on the receipt plus the adding of "Swiss" to my last name on the package as well ;D haha.

I must admit-my brain was scattered in the beginning. But once I joined the speed trip, (mentally), I was caught up in the moment that lasted for days.

Purchased the book after learning my mother was the subjects of one of his paintings in this series. As expected, death and disaster is a depressing subject. I was very interested in the story behind this and other series of his.

This is THE best Warhol book I own. If you love Warhol and you love photography, you will love this book. Nicely researched and quality printing too.

Great book showing progress of Warhols work.
Th sections are well organized
most people won't like this...I think you have to be relatively self-directed to enjoy the book, as it consists of transcribed tape recordings, it is not so much served up to you as a novel by an author but rather more like a pile of files dumped on your table by an editor
