Gore Vidal--novelist, playwright, critic, screenwriter, memoirist, indefatigable political commentator, and controversialist--is America's premier man of letters. No other living writer brings more sparkling wit, vast learning, indelible personality, and provocative mirth to the job of writing an essay. This long-needed volume comprises some twenty-four of his forays into criticism, reviewing, political commentary, memoir, portraiture, and, occasionally, unfettered score settling. Among them are such classics as "The Top Ten Best-Sellers," "Dawn Powell: The American Writer," "Theodore Roosevelt: An American Sissy," "Pornography," and "The Second American Revolution." Edited and introduced by Gore Vidal's literary executor, Jay Parini, it will stand as one of the most enjoyable and durable works from the hand and mind of this vastly accomplished and entertaining immortal of American literature.
