a: A novel by Andy Warhol
New York: Grove Press, Inc, 1968
First edition of Warhol’s first novel, an experimental collection of four word-for-word transcriptions of tapes recorded by Warhol and Ondine between 1965 and 1967. 
In excellent condition with dust jacket in archival polyester protective cover

a, A Novel, Warhol's knowing response to James Joyce's Ulysses, follows an uninterrupted twenty-four hours in the life of Ondine, an actor who was famous mostly as a Factory fixture, Warhol film superstar and devoted amphetamine user. Warhol hired four typists (including Maureen Tucker, the drummer for the Velvet Underground and two high school girls) to transcribe audio tapes of conversations between him and Ondine between 1965 and 1967 and the book is a verbatim printing of the typed manuscripts, containing every typo, abbreviation and inconsistency that the typists produced from the twenty-four tapes (each chapter is named for its respective tape and side, from '1/ 1' to '24/ 2'). In his glossary for the 1998 edition of a, A Novel, Victor Bockris cites Billy Name, the book's editor, as the source for the title; "a" refers to both amphetamine use and as an homage to e.e. cummings.
