GORE VIDAL ONE OF MY MASTER,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Point To Point Navigation: A Memoir (Paperback)
Yet again Gore Vidal has written a master piece. The details about the very famous people has made so far are always described without 'showing off', simply as they are with the criticism they may deserver as well as their praize.
Such a very rich life and yet accessible to us all. When asked his views about Obama just after the elections, his reply was simple and rather 'blaze', 'I have seen it all before', simple answer, black or white we know what the US Presidents can do! So does Vidal. He writes with an extreme witt even for very important situation in the world. I am not going to go on about it. His writing is made of perfect English and I will call him the 'sage voyeur' of the 20th century.
In all his books I have found this enjoyment of reading in my taste a very wise man who has grown even wiser or is he becoming rather tired to see no progress in this world, maybe he shows in his last books shown some melancholy. Aren't we all???
