Set in the dervish years of the Sixties and Seventies, Famous For Fifteen Minutes is a confession memoir of Ultra Violet. The story recounts of Warhol, a shy, bald, myopic, gay albino from an ethnic Pittsburgh suburb and the "Girl in Andy's Soup," Isabelle Collin Dufresne, a.k.a. Ultra Violet, a convent educated heiress from France. Salvador Dali, her companion for five years, introduced her to Andy in 1963. The book won the Deutsche Bibliothek Frankfurt Award, and has been published in 14 languages.

About the Author:

French born, Ultra Violet was exorcised, sent to a correction home, and then to New York in 1955. Her romance with Salvador Dali concluded with meeting Andy Warhol in 1964. She became a regular at the legendary factory. An artist, her work includes light, technology, and heavenly messengers. Her play, Tabernacle of Clay debates the innocence and/or criminality of Jesus Christ.

From Publishers Weekly:

Relying on memory, diaries, tapes, recorded phone calls and interviews, as well as on printed matter, Dufresne (aka Ultra Violet), assisted by freelancer Black, tells about her experiences as an Andy Warhol Queen of Pop. After recalling briefly her schoolgirl days in France, she describes her affairs with John Graham, Salvador Dali and Edward Rusche, her carryings-on in New York society, bizarre happenings at Warhol's famous loft, The Factory, her impressions of Edie Sedgwick, Viva and Norman Mailer, the making of light-shows and stupefyingly dull movies, Warhol's fascination with celebrities and his desire to become a male Marilyn Monroe. Trying to account for Warhol's attractiveness and the fact that he remained famous for 25 years, not just 15 minutes, she cites his enigmatic quality, his insistence on taking the mystery out of art, and his treatment of everyone with the same compelling immediacy. Yet she also sees the pre-1968 artist, sorcerer, conjuror and diabolist succeeded by the businessman, money-man and accumulator of his later years. Like Warhol's film Chelsea Girls , this book may be regarded as "half Bosch and half bosh." Photos.
