Bob Colacello's "Holy Terror" Re-Released

March 11, 2014

Bob Colacello, the editor of Warhol’s Interview magazine, spent that decade by Andy Warhol's side as employee, collaborator, wingman, and confidante. In the rerelease of Holy Terror, Colacello brings us into Andy's world: into the Factory office, into Studio 54, into wild celebrity-studded parties, and into the early-morning phone calls where the mysterious artist was at his most honest and vulnerable. Colacello gives us, as no one else can, a riveting portrait of this extraordinary man: brilliant, controlling, shy, insecure, and immeasurably influential. When Holy Terror was first published in 1990, it was hailed as the best of the Warhol accounts. Now, some two decades later, this portrayal retains its hold on readers—as does Andy’s timeless power to fascinate, galvanize, and move us.
