Gore Vidal


Friday, October 30, 2009

If anyone's life is worth recounting, it's Gore Vidal's. The celebrated writer not only made his mark on literature over the past six decades, he also had a front row seat to history. His father romanced Amelia Earhart; he feuded with Eleanor Roosevelt and William F. Buckley among many others; and he went shooting with John F. Kennedy. Kurt finds out that despite working on this chronicle of his life, Gore Vidal isn't thinking about posterity.
