by | Read by Gore Vidal

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

What does it mean to be a famous author when novels -- and the discussion of them -- are no longer a part of everyday life? That's just one of the points Gore Vidal considers in this memoir in which the events of the author's life are intertwined with his strong opinions and ideas. Vidal's anecdotes about famous people like Greta Garbo and Tennessee Williams highlight his discussion of his own core beliefs. In his eighth decade, Vidal speaks with a voice that occasionally falters but makes clear the firmness of his opinions. That voice makes for compelling listening as he navigates from point to point, both in his personal journey and in his philosophy. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
