Review: Candy Darling: Memoirs of an Andy Warhol Superstar

Candy Darling: Memoirs of an Andy Warhol Superstar
Candy Darling: Memoirs of an Andy Warhol Superstar by Candy Darling
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Very disjointed and poorly formatted as an e-book, it was really hard to glean much of anything from this book. I understand wanting to portray the troubled and artistic sides of Candy Darling, but a reader has to be able to follow the narrative to see those sides. The diary entries and letters by Candy are more disjointed than anything Bill Burroughs could concoct. The second part with a more straight-forward biography (as an introduction) and a couple of what appear to be essays is a much easier, and much more informative read. The third, a return to Candy’s own writings, is again a bit difficult to get through, but seems to have had a bit more care taken with it.
