[nice tight clean book with no discernible wear; jacket shows teensy bit of wear at a couple of edges, minor surface abrasions near bottom right corner of front panel, one tiny closed tear and a touch of wrinkling at top of rear panel]. (B&W photographs) A biography of the transgender Puerto Rican actress who became Andy Warhol's last "superstar," this book chronicles Ms. Woodlawn's "reckless career reaching bizarre heights, hobnobbing with the rich and famous, collecting celebrities the way some people collect lint. [Her] autobiography is more than the memoirs of an on-looker; it is a hilarious and compellnig story of unbound craziness, ravaged lives, and the triumph of an indomitable spirit who survived a walk on the wild side." The Introduction is by Paul Morrissey, who directed her (if that's the word) in her first two films, TRASH and WOMEN IN REVOLT.
