I adored Gore Vidal!..........
I know I know it may be an over the top kind of statement but I did.
I think I read every novel (I could be wrong) his essays about the world in which he lived were at times out there but I rarely disagreed with his premise and his television appearances were legendary.
I grew up on Gore Vidal.
I read "The City and the Pillar" during my coming out process and even though it was written in 1947 it was startling in is frankness and oddly I found it comforting. I knew it was not going to be easy but I had to be me.
Do yourself a favor and watch "The Best Man" he wrote the screen play based on his play.
I could write for days about the impact Gore Vidal had on our culture, our art, our movies, our theater and my life, and I may at another time.
In November "In Bed With Gore Vidal - Hustlers, Hollywood and the Private Life of an American Master" will be published. Apparently the book details Mr. Vidal's sex life; something he refused to discuss.
Do we really need to know?
Will I buy the book?
