Here's an interesting chance to hear about the cultural zeitgeist from an editor and writer who has helped steer it. Bob Colacello was the editor of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine from 1971 to 1983. Since 1984 he has been a special correspondent for Vanity Fair and has written more than 100 profiles of prominent cultural, political, and social figures,the author of several books including Ronnie and Nancy: Their Path to the White House and Holy Terror: AndyWarhol Close Up.
