Publisher's Summary

The classic study of a man who redrew the boundaries of art.
Andy Warhol's work and personality changed American visual culture forever, making him an international superstar. His rise to global fame, his entanglement with the seedy New York sexual underground, and the shocking assassination attempt that almost ended his life are chronicled in Stephen Koch's indispensible classic, Stargazer.
In this must-listen volume, Stephen Koch provides unprecedented detail on Warhol's life and work, giving particular attention to a medium that found Andy at his wildest: film. In one who made paradox into an art form, Koch finds that there was inspiration and brilliance on both sides of the public image that Warhol so meticulously crafted.

put it back on the shelf

What disappointed you about Stargazer?

it read more like a pedantic thesis about Andy Warhol, than anything with a personal, or provocative slant

What do you think your next listen will be?

something about Thomas Cromwell

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

nope

Any additional comments?

Reach for Bob Colacelo's (sp?) wonderful book, "Holy Terror" about Warhol's Factory in the 70s to 80s.

Pretentious and verbose

Was looking forward to hearing this book but I was disappointed by its verbose pretentiousness ...
