Gore Vidal


“I have no wish to commit literary patricide, or to assassinate Vidal’s character—a character which appears, in any case, to have committed suicide.”
– Christopher Hitchens

Gore Vidal is dead. He was 86.

How should we remember Gore Vidal? Anti-semite? Apologist for Roman Polanski? Author of a pornographic film? Timothy McVeigh conspiracy theorist? September 11 conspiracy theorist?

“Anyone who lies about Gore Vidal is doing him a favor.”
– William F Buckley jr

Buckley should have punched him in the nose.
