I am a Huge Warhol Fan and started reading this book back in the early nineties, when I was studying Fashion Design & Film Making in College. He has been a great inspiration for me and I continue to be inspired by his work.
The Andy Warhol Diaries is an intimate look inside the artists life and daily thoughts, documented between 1976 to 1987 by Pat Hackett. She was his secretary at the time and later became one of his closest friends.
The diaries were originally started in 1976 to keep a record of Warhol's expenses for tax purposes as he was audited every year by the IRS. It's a must read by anyone interested in Andy Warhol or the New York Art Scene at that time.
