FRESH WARHOL TAKE IS PERFECT WINTER READING
Speaking directly to the pop icon's ghost, Megan Volpert dives into a completely charted yet utterly
unknown ocean that is Andy Warhol. The resulting collection of love letters and hate mail audaciously perforates the
scene of the usual cultural suspects with icy shrapnel in a terrifying mirror game. This is not a biography, but a book
that reflects Andy--detects him, the Andy who deflects.
Working into territory that channels the essay as its more
radical practitioners imagine, Volpert revives the prose poem and rethinks herself. As the idea of a "real"
Andy begins to decay, the author learns to invent him and discovers herself everywhere. Remaking this mythic man in
the image of her own baggage, Volpert gives us her most personal writing to date and a striking truth: everybody becomes Andy.
EILEEN MYLES SAYS:
"What Megan made is so smart--an obsessive poet's collage of homage of
deftly felt & cut opinion. It's an unvague Andy!"
