back to SEPT. 1975: ANDY WARHOL GOES CROSS-COUNTRY

Who wrote Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again?

The tour to promote The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again covered eight cities in sixteen days. With Andy was Fred Hughes, Jed Johnson, Lady Ann Lambton and Bob Colacello. According to Colacello, he "mostly" wrote four chapters of the book, Pat Hackett wrote nine, Brigid Berlin wrote one (The Tingle) and all three of them had worked on the prologue.

Bob Colacello:

"I hadn't fully comprehended what I'd gotten myself into by ghostwriting the book, until Andy was photographed for the cover of New York magazine, which had bought the serial rights. They posed him in a closet, sitting at a typewriter, under a headline that read: Andy Warhol's Greatest Secrets: He Likes To Write. It finally hit me then - I was part of a big lie and while it had lined my pockets, it robbed my ego of any hope of recognition." (BC308)
