He spent his childhood in Washington DC, in the household of his grandfather, the blind senator from Oklahoma, T.P. Gore, and in the various domestic situations of his complicated and exasperating mother, Nina. Then come schooldays at St Albans and Exeter; the army; life as a literary wunderkind in New York, London, Rome and Paris in the '40s and '50s; sex in an age of promiscuity; and a campaign for Congress in 1960. His cast includes Tennessee Williams, the Kennedys, Eleanor Roosevelt, Truman Capote, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Christopher Isherwood, Jack Kerouac, Jane and Paul Bowles, Santayana, Anais Nin, Norman Mailer, Leonard Bernstein and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, among others.Hide synopsis

But in addition to being a fine writer, this is a man who: grew up with a blind grandfather United States senator, had close friends like Tennessee Williams, Paul Bowles and Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. He has so many ...
Few are the prominent people of the post war period not to have been associated with Gore Vidal, and his polished, lively prose makes this memoir all the more enjoyable. A perfect companion to his first volume of collected essays ("United States"), also highly recommended.
Vidal's bittersweet memoir is a mesmerizing trip through his first 40
