|| Conceptually unique, hilarious and frightening, referred to as pornography” in The New York Times Book Review's original review and as a work of genius” in Newsweek's, a: A Novel is the perfect literary manifestation of Andy Warhol's sensibility. In the late sixties Warhol set out to turn a trade book into a piece of pop art, and the result was this astonishing account of the famously influential group of artists, superstars, addicts and freaks who made up the Factory milieu. Created from audiotapes recorded in and around the Factory, a: A Novel begins with the fabulous Ondine popping several amphetamines and then follows its characters as they converse with inspired, speed-driven wit and cut swaths through the clubs, coffee shops, hospitals, and whorehouses of 1960's Manhattan.
