The Selected Essays of Gore Vidal

Book Digest If you don’t own Vidal’s National Book Award-winning United States: Essays, 1952 – 1992, a compendium of his admirably provocative polemical prose exhibiting his vast erudition, you can dip into his amusing and well-honed unorthodoxy with this more-focused anthology. Jay Parini, Vidal’s literary executor, has selected 24 of the more than 200 essays Vidal has written, including well-known favorites “The Top Ten Best-Sellers,” “Theodore Roosevelt: An American Sissy,” and “The Second American Revolution.”
