Product Description

Wayne Koestenbaum is a cultural critic and academic based in New York.A properly analytic, and always entertaining, account of Warhol's effort to record the encounter between his awkward, shamed and failing body and the corporeal lustre for which he longed.This is as smart and serious account as you could desireThroughout, Koestenbaum's engagements with Warhol's life and art, tinged with poetic brilliance and surgical dispassion, feel very high-stakes indeed, making this book an engrossing battle of willsKoestenbaum gives us a Warhol who is ineffably sad but heroic too: a man full of bravado, patience, energy and devotion to work, to making things. It's a book that should tempt both those generally familiar with Andy Warhol and, even more, young people who have trouble imagining how popular art can challenge the status quoWayne Koestenbaum, an astute cultural critic who in the past has eloquently explored topics ranging from opera to Jacqueline Onassis, has written a brief biography, Andy Warhol, ... Instead of portraying Warhol as he has been popularly depicted for decades, as the pope of Pop, Koestenbaum sketches him as the sovereign of Swish. This is a portrait of Andy Warhol as the ''20th century's quintessential "queer" artist.'
