Eleanor: The Years Alone by Joseph P. Lash

The sixties were the sex, drugs, & rock-and-roll era, & Andy Warhol was its cultural icon. Painter, filmmaker, photographer, philosopher, Warhol was both celebrity & celebrant, the man who put the pop in art. His studio, The Factory, where his free-spirited cast of superstars mingled with the rich & famous, was ground zero for the explosions that rocked American cultural life. And yet for all his fame, Warhol was an enigma: a participant in the excesses of his time who remained a faithful churchgoer, a nearly inarticulate man who was also a great aphorist (In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes), an artist whose body of work sizzles with sexuality but whose own body was a source of shame & self-hatred. In his bravura account of Warhols life & work, scholar & culture critic Wayne Koestenbaum gets past the contradictions & reveals the man beneath the blond wig & dark glasses. Nimbly weaving brilliant & witty analysis into an absorbing narrative, Koestenbaum makes a convincing case for Warhol as a serious artist, one whose importance goes beyond the sixties. Focusing on Warhols provocative, powerful films (many of which have been out of circulation since their initial release), Koestenbaum shows that Warhols oeuvre, in its variety of form (films, silkscreens, books, happenings), maintains a striking consistency of theme: Warhol discovered in classic American images (Brillo boxes, Campbell soup cans, Marilyns face) a secret history, the erotic of time & space.
