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.

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