"Andy loved to take party and celebrity pictures, but he became a magnet, an insider. Ron was still on the outside, and Andy knew how hard that was, but also how good the unexpected, unauthorized results could be. In his diaries, Andy mentions how bad he felt when he saw Ron being threatened by Madonna's bodyguards – 'but what could I do?' Andy had been there once, and he admired the nerve it took for Galella to get the shot, whatever it took. Nobody ever stuck his or her hand in front of Andy's lens, but he could empathize. I bet Andy, for everything he had, was still jealous of Ron's guts" (from the preface). No dust jacket, as issued. Fine. Item #1019
