photoLucid, insightful and razor-sharp, Gore Vidal has been taking on the American Empire for nearly half a century. As war with Iraq looms, the legendary author and essayist is in high dudgeon. A night with the prolific, ever-engaging, and right now angry, Gore Vidal.


Gore Vidal, author of twenty-two novels, five plays, many screenplays, and more than two hundred essays, his latest book is "Dreaming War: Blood for Oil and the Cheney-Bush Junta"
