Artist, filmmaker, writer, rock producer, publisher, and the leading exponent of Pop Art, Andy Warhol (1928–1987) used his canvasses of dollar bills, soup cans, disasters, and celebrities to erase the distinction between high and popular culture. His spectacular career shaped and encompassed the underground scene of drugs, sex, and punk rock as well as the equally deviant worlds of big business, politics, show business, and high society. Victor Bockris was Warhol's friend and worked at his famous Factory. Based on the author's intimate knowledge and interviews with family, friends, lovers, business associates, and enemies, this definitive biography reveals Warhol's complex and controversial life.
