|Am reading an recent interview with the man...how about this:
"In Vidal's latest book, a memoir entitled Point to Point Navigation, he adroitly skewers old adversaries such as Truman Capote, mere mention of whom makes him sound as if battery acid has dripped onto his tongue ("Let's not go into that swampland") and Tennessee Williams."
as far as putdowns go..."Let's not go into that swampland."...how quick!
That voice of his...instantly recalled...he could recite the alpabet and I'd be a happy chicken...my ears enjoy...
"I've never accepted the external appearance of things as the whole truth. The world is much more elaborate than the nerves of our eye can tell us." - James Gleeson
