Iran (So Far Away)

Another excerpt from The Andy Warhol Diaries:

Thursday, July 7, 1977

Cabbed up to the Iranian embassy ($2.50). There were no demonstrators out front. Inside I saw Otto Preminger again and it was the second or third time in a few days, so he asked me what we were going to do tomorrow. I posed for pictures with the queen in front of my portrait of her. She said she was jealous of Hoveyda because he had eight Warhols and she only had four. The queen is taller than me.
