Reviews

"An epic cradle-to-grave biography of the king of pop art...The author serves up fresh details about almost every aspect of Warhol's life in an immensely enjoyable book that blends snappy writing with careful exegeses of the artist's influences and techniques...A fascinating, major work that will spark endless debates."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Gopnik's exhaustive but stylishly written and entertaining account is Warholian in the best sense--raptly engaged, colorful, open-minded, and slyly ironic. ("He had become his own Duchampian urinal, worth looking at only because the artist in him had said he was.") Warhol fans and pop art enthusiasts alike will find this an endlessly engrossing portrait.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Enthusiastic and absorbing. --Wall Street Journal
Highly readable...certainly for those fascinated with Warhol, but equally for those seeking an in-depth yet accessible introduction to the artist.--Library Journal
Impressive, sweeping --Washington Post
Warhol lived one of the great lives of the 20th century, and he now has a biography worthy of that life...Even at 976 pages, the book rarely leaves you wanting less. It turns out this life, so often discussed in grandiose or mythic terms, is quite intricate, even beautiful, in extreme close-up."--Los Angeles Times
