Product Details

Praise

"A superb story. . . . Vidal’s people are per-suasive, and he handles the interplay of per-sonality and power with rare skill. . . . Fascinating."
–John Kenneth Galbraith

"        Vidal is the best political novelist since Disraeli. . . . [His] highly polished prose style, in part the fruit of his classical training, is a constant delight. One might even go so far as to call him a modern La Rochefoucauld."
–Louis Auchincloss

"        Washington to Vidal is like some Jacobean court, a city where even the smallest movement is in-teresting and dangerous, and where strokes and suicide have taken the place of poison."
–Times Literary Supplement
