Three month fever : the Andrew Cunanan story by Gary Indiana( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 618 libraries worldwide
"In Three Month Fever, his first book-length work of nonfiction, Gary Indiana presents the 1997 killing spree of Andrew Cunanan as a peculiarly contemporary artifact, an alloy in which reality and myth have been inseparably combined." "In following Cunanan's "trail of death," Indiana presents a riveting, fully realized portrait of a very bright, even brilliant young man whom people liked. He had charisma, great looks, and money that he spent very freely on others. He was a sympathetic listener with a phenomenal memory for names, faces, and virtually anything he read or saw. But he didn't fit in anywhere, and he couldn't solve the problem of how to live." "He wanted to be loved for himself. The two people he thought might love him for himself didn't, and he ended up killing them. This was probably the last thing he wanted to do." "But in Miami he found himself trapped, the very places where he expected to "blend in" were best informed about who he was and what he looked like. It was isolation he could not deal with - and that led to his total disintegration and the death of Gianni Versace."--Jacket
Andy Warhol and the can that sold the world by Gary Indiana( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: In the summer of 1962, Andy Warhol unveiled 32 Soup Cans in his first solo exhibition at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles-and sent the art world reeling. The responses ran from incredulity to outrage; the poet Taylor Mead described the exhibition as "a brilliant slap in the face to America." The exhibition put Warhol on the map-and transformed American culture forever. Almost single-handedly, Warhol collapsed the centuries-old distinction between "high" and "low" culture, and created a new and radically modern aesthetic. In Andy Warhol and the Can that Sold the World, the dazzlingly versatile critic Gary Indiana tells the story of the genesis and impact of this iconic work of art. With energy, wit, and tremendous perspicacity, Indiana recovers the exhilaration and controversy of the Pop Art Revolution and the brilliant, tormented, and profoundly narcissistic figure at its vanguard

Let it bleed : essays, 1985-1995 by Gary Indiana( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 295 libraries worldwide
Gary Indiana's essays, like his fiction, take no prisoners. In his fifteen years of writing cultural criticism, he has altered the way we look at ourselves and our society. Ignoring good taste, Indiana writes discomforting home truths, because his views of home are unique and never comfortable. His insights are acute, brash, bracing, intelligent; his subjects and speculations range from Rodney King's beating to Mary McCarthy's friendship with Hannah Arendt to the presidential campaign of 1992. Let it Bleed collects for the first time some of the most engaging, provocative, and exciting writing that has been seen and produced in a long time
Schwarzenegger syndrome : politics and celebrity in the age of contempt by Gary Indiana( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 295 libraries worldwide
A witty travelogue through the intersection of celebrity culture with American political life, this book lays bare the dark implications of Schwarzenegger's rise to power in the Golden State. From the California recall circus, in which over one hundred candidates vied to replace a supposedly inept governor, Schwarzenegger emerged triumphant. How did this onetime bodybuilding champion, with no political experience and a string of mediocre action movies to his name, come to take over the world's fifth-largest economy? Journalist and novelist Indiana makes the case that this tale is a product of a media-soaked culture, in which image matters more than substance. With so many candidates in the race, Schwarzenegger certainly wasn't the most qualified, the most articulate, or the most credible--but he was the most famous. And for the majority of Californians, that was enough.--From publisher description
Salò or The 120 days of Sodom by Gary Indiana( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and Hebrew and held by 264 libraries worldwide
"Sal ̣or The 120 Days of Sodom (Sal ̣o le 120 giornate di Sodoma, 1975) is one of the most scandalous films ever made. It was Pier Paolo Pasolini's last film; he was murdered shortly after completing it. An adaptation of the Marquis de Sade's vicious masterpiece, but relocated to Facist-ruled Italy, Salo is an unflinching, violent portrayal of sexual cruelty which many find too disturbing to watch. But insightful artworks are often disturbing. Beneath the extreme, taboo-breaking surface of Salo, Gary Indiana argues, is a deeply penetrating account of human behaviour. It's a picture not only of fascism but also, prophetically, of the corporate-run consumer culture we live in today, 'where a limitless choice of gratifications disguises an absence of all choice and all resistance, where nothing can disrupt the smooth operation of a system that turns art into products and people into things.' "--Page [4] COVER
Front pages by Nancy Chunn( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 263 libraries worldwide
Chunn's treatment of the events we all lived through - the Presidential campaign, the crash of TWA flight 800, the wars in Chechnya and Rwanda - will strike an immediate chord in readers tuned in to the complex frequencies of a political world awash in images and news. Gary Indiana's interview with the artist provides lively and intimate insights into the artistic process as means of talking back to power and engaging with the world. Front Pages is being published to coincide with an exhibition of these works at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, January 10-March 2, 1998
Salò, o, Le 120 giornate di Sodoma = Salò, the 120 days of Sodom by Pier Paolo Pasolini( visu )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in Italian and held by 254 libraries worldwide
In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial

Rent boy by Gary Indiana( Book )
13 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 205 libraries worldwide
Danny is a rent boy, an architecture student, a waiter, and hot! Working his way through school seemed pretty easy: he serves ego-obsessed writers their cocktails at the Emerson Club; he has his toes and other appendages sucked by horny businessmen; and he escorts anyone -- male, female, or otherwise -- who can afford him. But then his liaison with another rent boy gets him involved with an organ theft ring centering around a crazy old doctor and a crackpot nurse. A relentless stream of social commentary, careening between sex, comedy, and murder, Rent Boy is a hysterical romp through the worlds of contemporary culture and crime

A collection of interviews and clips by and about the revolutionary American artist Jack Smith. Filmmaker, actor, and pioneer of underground cinema, he is generally acclaimed as a founding father of American Performance Art, and has been critically recognized as a master photographer. The film also delves into Smith's tenuous relationship with Andy Warhol -- who adopted Smith's ideas in his own work. Pays homage to New York's ultimate anti-hero and the original King of the Underground
Angel without you by Tracey Emin( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
The most highly publicized of the infamous Young British Artists, Emin has stirred as much controversy as she has acclaim, being both highly personal and extremely original in her art. Emin's work is engaging, titillating, disturbing, and startlingly confessional. One of her most famous pieces is Everyone I Ever Slept With 1963-1995, a tent appliqued with names. Another notorious work, My Bed--the scene where she spent four days contemplating suicide--was exhibited at Tate Britain when the artist was short-listed for the Turner prize in 1999. Though denounced by conservative critics at the outset, Emin's work has attracted serious critical attention for more than a decade. In the words of Art in America, "What brought Emin to prominence was shock value, but what keeps her work powerful as she continues is the strength and nuance of its form and content." Compiled in close collaboration with the artist herself--and unprecedented in its scope--this is the definitive book on Emin, featuring drawings, paintings, sculptures, appliques and embroideries, neon and video stills as well as her own writing
