Hutchinson £7.95 From the man who immortalised the Camp- bell's Soup can - a decade in the life of a segment of New York society. Although Warhol's Pop art,his intermin- able underground movies & the "happen- ings" at his Factory studio were met largely with shocked disbelief, it is clear that the artist was no con-artist He was a delighted observer of the '60s at their most outrageous & recalls in affectionate detail the dress,the drugs and other habitsN Famous names abound but it's not always a pretty story, ending with the attempt on his life and a number of human casualties. Well-written and fascinating.

There's no whiff of autobiography, but Mr. Morecambe's inside knowledge of the seamier side of the business at drink- ing club or pier end, as well as Vegas or award dinner, lends constant authen- ticity. It's consistently funny with passages of slapstick so detailed and lunatic they rival Tom and Jerry's. The author crops up as himself from time to time, a casual friend,even app- earing among the "biographical" photos. This novel device is 100% successful and it's a charming, funny read.

The narrative obstensibly concerns a girl suffering from almost total amnesia. She appears to have been cut adrift to make sense of the world as best she can. Her progress is monitored by a policeman who occasionally inserts cynical and sometimes, very funny comments on alcoholism, sex etcN However, the sum of amnesiac Mary Lamb, her alter ego Amy Hide and her mentor do not add up to a solution of "the mystery"N The result is more like a diabolically vivid description of hell.
