i wanted to be convinced that warhol had something to say or to add as an artist. not according to this book. rubin writes an interesting biography finishing it circa 1965 then adds a ten page timeline to the end of the book. he was shot? didn't see his mother for two years? dies from a gall bladder operation, why? where?
