Styled after a teenager’s composition notebook, this scrapbook styled book by Cherry Vanilla chronicles her life in photography, poems, and prose through her connections to Andy Warhol, David Bowie, and others. From starring in Andy Warhol’s Pork to working as David Bowie’s publicist during the Ziggy Stardust era in the early 70’s, Cherry Vanilla (born Kathleen Doritee) was a major player in the glam and punk rock scenes. Known for her outrageous marketing strategies and presence at all the best parties, Cherry went on to be a musician and author in her own right. This book chronicling her early years displays a singular and unique talent and charisma.
