"My Life in Pictures" is Gore Vidal's visual memoir of his remarkable life. In this book of never-before-seen photographs, letters, manuscripts and other material from Vidal's vast personal archives, readers are escorted by one of America's wittiest insiders into the Kennedys' backyard, onto the set of Ben Hur and into the private lives of Truman Capote, Amelia Earhart and Anais Nin, to name just a few. Here Vidal looks back on his days as an Army officer in WWII, his rise as a groundbreaking and controversial novelist, his years in Hollywood, his forays into the political arena and his notoriously public triumphs and feuds. Written with Vidal's legendary wit and literary elegance, this book reveals not only the personal reflections of one of the last of the great generation of American writers, but also a captivating social history of the twentieth century told by one of our great raconteurs.
