Leo Castelli (left) with Andy Warhol (right) 1966 - NY Times

For your summer reading list: Author Annie Cohen-Solal’s 2009 biography of NY art impresario Leo Castelli was recently translated from the orignal French into English and released in the US as "Leo & His Circle: The Life of Leo Castelli."

From the LA Times Book Reveiw by Mark Lamster: A dealer and his galaxy of art stars in 'Leo and His Circle"
Of Castelli's family history, Cohen-Solal provides more information than the average reader, especially one hoping for a gossipy art-world tell-all, may be willing to bear. Indeed, she has practically created two independent books joined at the middle, one examining the Castelli family's trials and tribulations over five generations, the second picking up in detail after Leo's arrival in the U.S. in 1941, a refugee from the Nazi extermination machine. Both, it should be said, are well worth reading.
