Gore Vidal

a.k.a. Eugene Luther Gore Vidal

Author Code: AEGV

Born: Oct. 3, 1925 - West Point, New York, USA

Died: Jul. 31 2012 - Hollywood Hills, California, USA

Educated at St. Albans School and Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, Vidal experienced Europe on a trip in 1939, visiting Italy, France and Great Britain. He enlisted in the US Army at the outbreak of war and worked as an office clerk until he passed the examination to become a maritime warrant officer. Following three years of service, he suffered from hyperthermia and rheumatoid arthritis and was reassigned as a mess officer. His first novel, Williwaw (1946), was moderately successful. His next few novels presented protagonist's homosexuality, especially in City and the Pillar (1948). He wrote in various genres including mystery, but his main output was in historical fiction. He was a gifted essayist as well as a playwright. In 1960, he ran for Congress as the Democratic candidate, but lost. In 1982, he campaigned against Jerry Brown, the governor of California. Throughout his life, Vidal was a political critic and anti-war activist. He is often remembered as half of the Vidal-Buckley feud, when they were political analysts for ABC television. He also won a slander suit against Truman Capote in 1968. He also had a feud with author Norman Mailer on the Dick Cavett Show. From 1950, Vidal shared his life with partner Howard Austen, until his death in 2003. His many works include A Search for the King (1950), The Judgment of Paris (1952), Visit to a Small Planet (1957), The Best Man (1960), Rocking the Boat (1963), Myra Breckinridge (1968), Burr (1973), 1876 (1976), The Second American Revolution (1983), Lincoln (1984), Empire (1987), The American Presidency (1998), On the March to the Sea (2005) and The Golden Age (2008).
