a, A Novel

Some annotations to a, A Novel by Andy Warhol, written as I study the novel. These notes are based on the Vintage Classics edition A: A novel, ISBN:9780099528784, which, I believe, has the same pagination as the original print. (This a work in progress. Additions and corrections are welcomed. email address.) I bought this book on April 12, 2014, started reading it on April 18, 2014 and finished reading on July 19, 2016. Working on this page continued after that date.

Page 1

Start of tape 1, side 1.

Ondine, Robert Olivo and Drella, Andy Warhol meet at Eighty-sixth Street and Fifth Avenue (according to the notes in the back of the book). It is two o'clock on a Friday (see page 18) afternoon in August 1965, most likely August 13 (see page 17). They make a phone call, probably from a phone booth on the street, as noises of cars can be heard, but only get an answering machine. At first I thought that the remainder of the page contained one side of a telephone conversation, but later I realized that the speaker identification is simply missing. It is mostly Ondine who is talking.

Ondine makes a call to Mayor, his friend Rotten Rita (real name Kenneth Rapp), who was an influential denizen of Warhol's The Factory and was sometimes referred to as "The Mayor" there.

They talk about where to go. Drella suggest to go through the park. Ondine is worried that there is no place to make a phone call. They decided to get something to drink, and probably, they walk in the direction of Madison Avenue en turn right there.

Ondine remarks that it is two o'clock and Drella tells he had to wait for Gerry before he could come to where they meet now. I presume that Gerry refers to Gerard Malanga.

Ondine tells that he fell asleep when he took the Fifth Avenue bus to where they met.

Blowing: reference to using drugs. Could be cocaine or cannabis. Smoking cannabis as a cause of a sore throat seems more likely.

This number. Refering to a boy or young man.

Drella offers Ondine some Obertol, a brand of amphetamine mixed salts based drugs indicated for treatment of exogenous obesity by the American pharmaceutical company Obetrol Pharmaceuticals. Around that time there were two doses: 10 and 20 mg. The 10 mg tablets were blue, and the 20 mg were orange.

Page 2

The previous evening, Drella talked with some Rita. Ondine finds her a mean girl.

Greenberg bakery. Could be related to William Greenberg Jr. Desserts, now at 1100 Madison Ave between 82nd and 83rd street, which a little to far to walk in the time past the start of the recording and the fact that on page 3 they mentioned to be on a junction with 85th street.

It seems that Ondine stayed in the park before he met with Drella. He says he is completely new to the area, while Drella seems to know it.

a cup of coffee like Thelma Ritter: Thelma Ritter was an American actress, best known for her comedic roles as working class characters.

The night before, Drella left Ondine (and some others) at four o'clock while they went to The whore house.

Page 3 People aren't equipped for my filth

They arrive at the Greenberg Jewish bakery. They look around, but do not buy anything.

Eight-fifth Street and Madison Avenue.

Mangos and Rosemary Clooney. Rosemary Clooney was an American singer and actress. Her career languished in the 1960s, partly due to problems related to depression and drug addiction. She had a hit with the song Mangos.

gook: (usually offensive) a nonwhite or non-American person; specifically: Asian.

Taxine or "Taxi," is Edie Sedgwick, the great female Warhol superstar. a, A novel was the beginning of the end of their relationship. Ondine talks about Taxine (who seems to live with him). He says it aweful working for her. Drella is very interested. Ondine tells that other think that they are sleeping together.

Page 5

Do Do Mae Doom or Do Do is Dorothy Dean. She worked at the New Yorker Magazine in the 60s.

Rink Crawl or Rink is Chuck Wein, responsible for bringing both Edie and Ingrid to the Factory.

French Coffee Shoppe. Could be Nectar Coffee Shop on 1022 Madison Avenue.

Debbie. Not Debbie Lee.

Roger. Ondine tells that he got annoyed at him. Could be Roger Trudow.

Page 6

Just before they arrive at Stark's Drella greets someone he knows from a gallery. They also see Wee Carter-Bell, who seems not to recognize them. Ondine says: "He's with Rauschenberg". Robert Rauschenberg was an American painter and graphic artist whose early works anticipated the pop art movement.

Drella orders a orange juice and Ondine takes a schecket, which is a type of sweet bun.

Drella shares some more Obertrols with Ondine, who in return shares some of his carbolic acis: Phenol. Here probably refering to oral analgesics spray containing phenol.

Ondine tells is gets very upset with playing sexual scenes as an actor.

Page 8

Ondine continues talking about his feeling with respect to sexual scenes. Scream and holler at Rita.

Ondine asks Drella about visiting The Duchess at the hospital.

Ondine thought that Drella would still be asleep at eleven that morning, but he took many Obertrols and stayed up the whole night reading magazines.

Norman. The name of an art collector or gallery owner.

Start of tape 1, side 2.

It is a little bit unclear who is who in this first part of the second side of the first tape. Only at the bottom of the page we find the first unquestionable speaker identification. There is an empty space at the start of the fifth line from the bottom, which should indicate a speaker change, but it is in the middle of the words "the table" in a sentence that makes sense. But a few lines earlier it must be Ondine who makes the remark about making a phone call. This seems to make sense with the previous part of the text where it is Warhol who describes himself as not really pop but a little bit of 1930 bohemian.

It seems that there is also some part missing in the conversation when the tape was switched, but likely they are still talking about Rauschenberg and probably a painting made by him.

Page 17

Beatles. Ondine says he is going to see The Beatles next Wednesday. From August 15 to 31, The Beatles made their second US tour. The only concert on a Wednesday was on August 18 in Atlanta and The Beatles arrived in New York on Friday, August 13. On August 25 they had a day off and did not meet anyone. On September 1, they flew back to London. From this is seems most likely, that today was Friday, August 13. It is possible that Ondine makes this remark, seemingly out of the blue, because they had just heard (in the background) that The Beatles had landed. YouTube: Beatles Arrive in NYC (1965).

One Fifth Avenue. One Fifth Avenue is a prewar high rise building that enjoys the prestige of being one of the few isolated skyscrapers in New York City. (Google streetview).
