Author Info
Gore Vidal
Born Eugene Luther Gore Vidal, at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, Vidal spent a significant portion of his childhood reading to his blind grandfather, Senator T. P. Gore of Oklahoma. As a consequence, he has been heavily influenced by works of politics and history. He served aboard an Arctic transport ship during World War II but was discharged due to rheumatoid arthritis; he published his first novel in 1946, at the age of 21, based on his experiences at sea. In the 1950s, Vidal began writing screenplays and dramatic works for the stage, but returned to writing novels in 1964, with JULIAN, his first historical novel--a best-seller that showed him one of the directions his career should take. It was followed a few years later by his outrageously successful MYRA BRECKINRIDGE, which showed him another. Well known as a writer of both historical potboilers and transgressive metafictions, several of which have been made into films, Vidal has also run for--though not been elected to--Congress and the Senate. He has been outspoken as a homosexual and as a professed and unshakable atheist. In a memorable 1972 interview, he said, "There is not one human problem that could not be solved, if people would simply do as I advise."
