Gore Vidal divides his time between Ravello, Italy, and Los Angeles.
"Gore Vidal is the master essayist of our age." -The Washington Post Book World
"Lively, instructive, lucid and amusing. Vidal has a carefree
touch and a humorous air. . . . [He] can be a marvelous wit." -Paul
Berman, The New York Times Book Review "Indispensable. . . .
An excellent read. . . . Provocateur, scholar, historian, novelist,
scoundrel, whatever you want to call Gore Vidal-make sure you
include 'national treasure.' . . . [He] is an original mind, who
thinks and sees without regard to convention. That alone makes him
required reading." -The Sunday Oregonian
