I started reading The City and the Pillar by Gore Vidal yesterday found it more like an artifact than a novel. Published in 1948, it is very much the coming out story that we all know, but written by Gore Vidal. I'm not sure I'll find it moving, but I find it interesting. So thought I'd surf over the the Gore Index and see what folks have said about Gore's third novel, but then came across this NYT story about Gore selling his home in Ravenna. According to the story Gore's "companion" died last year, and Gore's legs are too weak for him to be able to move around his terraced home. He'll be moving to Hollywood. I've been meaning to read his book about Washington, Adams, and Jefferson.
