The Education of Gore Vidal | 2002

A look at the career and views of Gore Vidal.


Whether or not a proponent of his words, Gore Vidal has retained his vitality as a charismatic and witty historian. He moved to Italy some 30 years ago, and remains an outspoken critic of American politics, perhaps able to see things more clearly from afar. Born into a privileged class with political expectations, Vidal chose to confront the status quo and has spent much of his life writing another version of history.
