Gore Vidal, Rest in Peace

The novelist who more than any other writer of his generation laid claim to being the republic’s biographer — he would have said obituarist — has died. TAC will have more to say about Gore Vidal, but in the meantime I direct readers to Bill Kauffman’s reviews of The Selected Essays of Gore Vidal and his memoirPoint to Point Navigation, as well as Justin Raimondo’s review of Inventing a Nation: Washington, Adams, Jefferson.
