Gore Vidal, 83, author, raconteur, man of letters, outspoken American, friend (and foe) to political elites, celebrities (mostly from the 50's, 60's 70's) and an infamous correspondent with one of America's most despised men. Though very often at odds with his fellow Americans, he was and is no less concerned about its' future and place in the world.
Mr. Vidal is never dull, always provocative and someone I genuinely admire.
A new book published this fall reveals the life of Gore Vidal through photographs, his perspective and memories.
