Worth it for the pictures

by bookboy on May 7, 2007

Each page of Factory Girl has either a gorgeous full color photo or photos of Edie, some of which I have never seen before but most of them I have in other books. A lot of the color photos also appear in Nat Finkelstein's The Factory Years which gives a greater photographic over view of "the factory". The pages are thick and glossy and technicolored like a Warhol painting and the font, utilizing many different font styles and sizes in one paragraph, can be a bit challeging to read. The text is primarily a rehash of snippets from George Plimptons Edie: An American Biography which is far superior in content and photos although all of the photos are in that book are black and white. Over all a nicely done tribute to a fascinating and tragic person but more of a photo album/coffee table book than a biography. A definite must for any Edie fan.
