Gore Vidal’s new collection of essays shows him still writing at his finest. His comments on the deplorable state of American politics – from Bill Clinton to George Bush – are as apposite as ever and, controversially, there are two magnificent essays on the Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh – who entered into an extraordinary correspondence with Vidal when he was in gaol – to the recent terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.


A collection of Gore Vidal's essays is always welcome, for wit, insight and passion rarely seen elsewhere in print.
