Gore Vidal has been at the centre of literary and intellectual life for half a century. He lives in Italy.
'Vidal's combination of learning, wit and disdain gets into your blood. He can change the way you think' OBSERVER 'This entertaining portrait of an imperial elite may well be, as Vidal intends, the version of US history that survives in the coming decades.' IRISH TIMES 'Crackpot theory has seldom been so suavely and entertainingly put across.' NEW STATESMAN 'Vidal's satiric thrusts are enormous fun.' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Easily one of his best works.' SCOTSMAN 'No one else has a comparable grasp of American history, nor the ability to make is come alive so vividly.' THE TIMES
