I read this because I like a lot of Mary Woronov's films and she seems pretty cool, so, what the heck. I know virtually nothing about Andy Warhol and the Factory, except for what I got in art history classes, which was pretty bland. I *think* I got a lot of this book, but who knows. It was tremendously interesting, and some parts are really, really funny. Others are really, really scary. For anyone interested in Andy Warhol and the people who made up the Factory, this book is for you. Mary Woronov was there and there is a chapter about many of the main people. It didn't mean much to me apart from entertainment because I had/have no idea who these people were/are, but for someone more serious about these people, this would be a must-read book. For the casual fan of Mary Woronov, you get a sense of her funny personality and stuff, her youth and college are covered, but there's nothing after the Factory. Whatever your interests, the book keeps your attention and is a great read.
Mary Woronov's Years in the Warhol Scene/Factory! I loved this Book! The style, the juxtaposition of Hard edged Woman & a lost little girl. I loved that she was "unlikable" This is the type of strong heroine the Suburban punkettes should be emulating. She knows who the fakers are and where they reside. She follows her Own path on her Own terms. When she almost allowed that Stalker girl to get hit by the train I was Jarred but secretly hoping for, as Mary was for an ending worth telling the Grandkids about! Don't be afraid to Swim Underground!
