A cultural storm swept through the 1960s - Pop Art, Bob Dylan, psychedelia, happenings, underground movies, the British Invasion - and at its center sat a bemused young artist with silver hair: Andy Warhol. Andy knew everybody - from the cultural commissioner of New York to drug-driven drag queens - and everybody knew Andy. His studio, the Factory, was THE place: where he created the large canvases of soup cans and Pop icons that defined Pop Art, where one could listen to Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground and rub elbows with Edie Sedgwick, where Chelsea Girls and Warhol's other underground classics were shot, and where Warhol himself could observe the comings and goings of the avant-garde. Anecdotal, funny, and frank, POPism is where Warhol tells it all - the ultimate inside story of a decade of cultural revolution.
