I Told You So: Gore Vidal Talks Politics by Jon Wiener, & Gore Vidal

The interviews cover a twenty-year span, from 1988 to 2008, when Vidal was at the height of his powers. His extraordinary facility for developing an argument, tracing connections between past and present, and drawing on an encyclopedic knowledge of America’s place in the world, are all on full display. And, of course, it being Gore Vidal, an ample sprinkling of gloriously acerbic oneliners is also provided.

About the Author

Gore Vidal (1925-2012) was the author of numerous novels, short stories, plays, screenplays and essays. A winner of the National Book Award, he was also a tireless political activist and, running as Democratic candidate for Congress in upstate New York, received more votes for that district than any Democrat in a half-century.

Jon Wiener is a contributing editor to The Nation and a professor of history at the University of California at Irvine. He is the author of "How We Forgot the Cold War: A Historical Journey across America," "Gimme Some Truth: The John Lennon FBI Files," and "Professors, Politics and Pop," and the editor (with Tom Hayden) of "Conspiracy in the Streets."
