I just spent two tears working on a new book about Andy Warhol - The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure, on sale July 28. I'd love to discuss it with your book club!(less)

I've always been interested in Andy, but I didn't think there was an inch of his life that hadn't been explored...until I came across a reference to a road trip he took in 1963. With a little research, I realized that his trip was a life-defining moment for him and the real start of the fabulous swinging sixties. Best part -- I had his receipts so I actually got to drive cross-country and re-create the trip. Route 66 is a blast. Hope this answers your question and thanks so much for writing. best, Deborah(less)

Exactly! The combination of Southern charm and big-city sophistication made him irresistible. And he knew it!
Deborah Davis answered Robert Swanson's question: Deborah   Davis
So nice to hear from you, Robert! Plimpton's book is wonderful - I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Also Gerald Clark's biography of Capote. And you may want to watch for an upcoming memoir by Peter Duchin. I never get tired of this subject!

“When he was very excited, [John Singer] Sargent would rush at his canvas with his brush poised for attack, yelling, 'Demons, demons, demons!' When he was particularly angry or frustrated, he expressed these feelings with 'Damn,' the only curse he allowed himself. He once had the expletive inscribed on a rubber stamp so he could have the satisfaction of pounding it on a piece of paper.”
Deborah Davis, Strapless: John Singer Sargent and the Fall of Madame X

“If there was a volcano under their feet, a Vesuvius that could erupt and bury this modern-day Pompeii at any moment, the best thing to do was dance on it. ”
Deborah Davis, Strapless: John Singer Sargent and the Fall of Madame X

“Curiously, anatomical reality in art was apparently a horrifying concept to the same men and women who lined up to see bodies at the morgue. ”
