"As a child I learned to don the mask when the occasion called for it. (Later I learned to don the wig.)"
Candy Darling confided her hopes, opinions, doubts, and beauty secrets to a diary that she kept from childhood onward. Though it contains tales from the wild life of the Warhol years, it is also the moving story of someone growing up -- in some ways quite unusual and in others universal. Edited by Jeremiah Newton, Francesca Passalacqua and D.E. Hardy, and illustrated with both photos and Candy's own sketches, the diary was published in 1997 by Hardy Marks Publications under the title My Face for the World to See.
