  1. This is a nice tribute to Gore Vidal, and I take note of two things in particular First, the Buckley Vidal blow up at the 1968 Presidential Convention was filmed live, and I saw it as it happened Such emotion was exciting to watch, especially from the oh so cool William F but when things escalated, the TV station cut off the feed, and moved to a commercial That incident sparked a media frenzy for days, and it s my understanding that now any live shows have at least a ten second delay, to avoid s [...]


  2. James Wolcott, who writes a regular column in Vanity Fair has written a lovely tribute to Gore Vidal, who passed away last year.There are multiple interesting and stirring moments in Vidal s life, and many of these are mentioned the famous stouch with Mailer on the Dick Cavett show though I did not know SPOILER ALERT that Mailer had head butted Vidal in the Green Room before going on stage Having read a number of Vidal books and articles, I was delighted and intrigued by the back ground stories [...]


  3. I claim that I was a 68 er This impresses my younger son who spent some time in France as an adolescent In truth, I did not run with the velvet revolutionaries but I did watch Gore Vidal and William F Buckley in debate And then the threatened fisticuffs between Mailer and Gore I vaguely recall Mailer snarling, staggering toward Vidal and falling off the set It was wonderful stuff No polite conversations with film stars who had just had their last breathless event recorded on Instagram.James Wolc [...]


  4. So much has been written about Vidal through the years, and especially after he passed on this July This essay is a true standout, though, and its engaging prose will edify Vidalophiles and newcomers to Vidal alike Wolcott, naturally, refers to the oft told stories of Vidal s public scrapes with the likes of Mailer and Buckley, but he does not dwell on them Wolcott places Vidal in context, and makes the reader yearn for the days when David Susskind sat in a cloud of cigarette smoke on his show w [...]


  5. James Wolcott has written a delightful, long magazine piece, the sort of thing I remember from the Atlantic Monthly or Harper s of my teenage years, a tribute to one of America s finest and most deliberately controversial contemporary writers I enjoyed every minute I spent with this piece and my only regret is that it wasn t a bit longer Highly recommended.


  6. Some called him over privileged and under edited All had to agree that Gore Vidal brought a brilliant mind and razor wit to any subject he took an interest in He was a gentleman, a home grown aristocrat, and a combatant who took on street fighter Norman Mailer and won on points He also outlived his peers and became a parody of himself, at times This loving bio shows a rare bird in America a funny intellectual who did not apologize for his brains A good read.


  7. Seems a balanced a count of the artist, fairly placed in his era, facing societal obstacles to describing the world as he experienced it However, much ofWhat he viewed was disclosed with great confidence,courage and admirable eloquence in a greatly dignified manner which no one else in his place could have pulled off so well and elegantly We will miss his contributions to the literary conversations he inspired.


  8. Wolcott gives an in depth analysis of Gore Vidal in relation to others of his time period and tells why Gore Vidal is special both as a public intellectual and as a wise and insightful writer I found it not only an enjoyable read, but one that provided new insight and understanding to this very special man and I might add, the others of his generation.


  9. The Gore Supremacy is a bizarre adulatory obituary of sorts by an author who realised later in life that the man whose work he once panned was actually at least as brilliant as he considered himself to be For someone who knew next to nothing about Vidal, it served as a good starting point In seventeen pages, the essay manages to draw a surprisingly rounded picture of the man it portrays The text is littered with snide remarks about a vast variety of people This will no doubt irk some and vastly [...]
