"The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol remains one of the most illuminating explorations of the silver-haired misfit, and its reissue--filled out with dozens of unpublished photos--is a good thing."
--The New York Observer

Gerard Malanga became the first "employee" of the Factory when Warhol hired him in 1963 at minimum wage because he had experience in silkscreening neckties. Malanga went on to become a close associate and collaborator.

JOHN WILCOCK: When did you first meet Andy and under what circumstances?
GERARD MALANGA: The first time I met Andy was at a party given by Marie Menken, and Charles Henri Ford came with Andy. It was a very brief meeting and really didn’t amount to anything Then in June of ‘63 when I finished college, I needed work, and Charles Henri Ford knew that I needed a job and knew that Andy needed an assistant. He introduced the two of us at a poetry reading at the New School, and Andy asked me how much I wanted to get paid and then said, “All right, you can come by tomorrow."
JW: How much did you need to get paid, and what did the job entail?
GM: I helped him silkscreen paintings, and I got paid $1.25 an hour.
JW: So that was what you were doing for very long, silkscreening paintings?
GM: It was a summer job that lasted up until now. (laughs)

JOHN WILCOCK

A prolific columnist, author, travel writer and ex-New Yorker, John Wilcock was a co-founder of the Village Voice, the Witches Almanac and Interview. He published the underground newspaper Other Scenes, and by 1971 had written more than a dozen books.

The way Interview began was with one of the occasional phone calls Andy made to me in which he--once again--was bitching about how Hollywood wouldn’t give him a million dollars to go out there and make a movie. Off-handedly I said, “Well Andy, all my friends publish newspapers. Why don’t you produce a paper?” It was met with a noncommittal grunt, but ten minutes later Andy called again. “What kind of paper?” he asked in that querulous, uncertain voice.

I remember telling him that a film paper would be an obvious choice and offering to put up the typesetting (via Ambertype, the company run by my then-wife Amber LaMann, which was already providing the typesetting for many of Manhattan’s underground papers). Typesetting and printing bills would be about equal, I said, and thus we could share ownership of the paper. At the time, I was busy producing Other Scenes, a semi-radical tabloid I had begun a year or two previously, and as my travel writing job was still necessitating regular trips to Japan and Greece I was too busy to even think of getting involved editorially.

But I did suggest that he follow the example of Art D’Lugoff’s Village Gate and call the paper Andy Warhol’s inter/VIEW (he had come up with that title). No, he replied, he didn’t want his name on it, nor did he want it printed in color. “What style would the paper follow?” I asked, figuring that anything Andy came up with would be imaginatively innovative. “I want it to look like Rolling Stone,” he said determinedly, to my surprise.

And thus Interview was born and Andy began to carry a tape recorder with him everywhere he went.

The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol

By John Wilcock. Edited by Christopher Trela. Photographs by Shunk-Kender.

Village Voice and Interview cofounder John Wilcock was first drawn into the milieu of Andy Warhol through filmmaker Jonas Mekas, assisting on some of Warhol's early films, hanging out at his parties and quickly becoming a regular at the Factory. “About six months after I started hanging out at the old, silvery Factory on West 47th Street,” he recalls, “[Gerard] Malanga came up to me and asked, ‘When are you going to write something about us?'” Already fascinated by Warhol's persona, Wilcock went to work, interviewing the artist's closest associates, supporters and superstars. Among these were Malanga, Naomi Levine, Taylor Mead and Ultra Violet, all of whom had been in the earliest films; scriptwriter Ronnie Tavel, and photographer Gretchen Berg; art dealers Sam Green, Ivan Karp, Eleanor Ward and Leo Castelli, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Henry Geldzahler; the poets Charles Henri Ford and Taylor Mead, and the artist Marisol; and the musicians Lou Reed and Nico. Paul Morrissey supplied the title: The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol is the first oral biography of the artist. First published in 1971, and pitched against the colorful backdrop of the 1960s, it assembles a prismatic portrait of one of modern art's least knowable artists during the early years of his fame. The Autobiography and Sex Life is likely the most revealing portrait of Warhol, being composite instead of singular; each of its interviewees offers a piece of the puzzle that was Andy Warhol. This new edition corrects the many errors of the first, and is beautifully designed in a bright, Warholian palette with numerous illustrations.The British-born writer John Wilcock cofounded The Village Voice in 1955, and went on to edit seminal publications such as The East Village Other, Los Angeles Free Press, Other Scenes and (in 1970) Interview, with Andy Warhol.

"Isabelle Collin Dufresne moved to New York in 1953 and was befriended by many of the day’s renowned artists, including Salvador Dali. Dali introduced her to Warhol in 1963, and she became one of the best-known 'superstars.' She took the name Ultra Violet after seeing the words in Time magazine."

ULTRA VIOLET

Isabelle Collin Dufresne moved to New York in 1953 and was befriended by many of the day’s renowned artists, including Salvador Dali. Dali introduced her to Warhol in 1963, and she became one of the best-known “superstars.” She took the name Ultra Violet after seeing the words in Time magazine.

JOHN WILCOCK: Ivan Karp said he spoke to Andy one day about how he liked cows, and the next thing you know, Andy is doing Cow wallpaper.
ULTRA VIOLET: Also, there’s a very interesting factor about Andy, that his products are quite deadly. By this, I mean the way he did Electric Chair, he did Marilyn Monroe and she is suicide; he did Jackie Kennedy and she has somewhat of a dramatic life; he did the Tuna Fish Can . . .

JW: And there was that scandal about the poisoned tuna.
UV: This came just after he was shot, which is very interesting. It is like a conclusion to all that. I think a very creative homosexual has a, how do you call it, a very necrophilic sort of tendency. Some of his Flowers are very beautiful, but I’ve seen some that are sort of mauve and blue and almost poisonous. Do you know what I mean?

JW: Do you think he’s conscious of that?
UV: No, I don’t really think so.

JW: If he was conscious of it, do you think he would try to avoid it, or would it bother him one way or the other?
UV: No, I don’t think it would bother him. He remains an artist in spite of that. It doesn’t matter, that’s his style. The Marquis de Sade had a very definite style and was extremely brilliant, and whether he was conscious or unconscious, it really doesn’t matter.
