Viva [Hoffmann, Janet Susan Mary]


1st Edition

First UK edition. Publisher’s original faux-leather boards with silver design and lettering to spine. Slight foxing to top-edge of text block. A little bumped to corners. Otherwise about fine. In Pat Voehl designed dust jacket with a photograph by Cecil Beaton. Unclipped but with price crossed out and new price written above. Rubbing and creasing to edges and with a few short closed tears. Reinforced with tape to reverse. *** Autobiographical novel by Andy Warhol’s superstar Viva, ‘laying bare the freak, hip world, the world of easy sex and abundant drugs…’ as well as the misogyny and abuse that make for difficult reading. An important insider document of Warhol’s Factory in the late 1960s.
