NEW EDIE SEDGWICK BOOKS
Two new books on Andy Warhol's superstar, Edie Sedgwick, will be published in the Autumn prior to the release of the Edie Sedgwick biopic, Factory Girl.
Edie: Factory Girl is by photographer Nat Finkelstein and David Dalton. Finkelstein's haunting photographs of Edie are well-known - some were included in his previous book, Andy Warhol: The Factory Years, 1964-1967. The new book will include previously unpublished photos of the Warhol star with text by Dalton who previously wrote the text for the David McCabe photo book, A Year in the Life of Andy Warhol. Dalton's sister, Sarah, edited Warhol's film Sleep. Edie: Factory Girl will be published in October 2006, with the film due to be released in December.
Edie: Girl on Fire is by David Weisman and Melissa Painter. Weisman co-directed Edie's final (non-Warhol) film Ciao! Manhattan. His new book on Edie is due to be published in November 2006.
