With the passing of Gore Vidal
in the news I decided to check up on what electronic editions were available.
It looks like Amazon has all of his "American Chronicle" except for 1876.
Burr, Lincoln, Empire
are all available as well as Messiah
and various collections of essays. but no Julian, Myra Breckenridge, Live from Golgotha
or The City and the Pillar
I may get Empire
since I haven't read those yet.
Some of my favorite quotes:
"There is no human problem which could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise."
"I never miss a chance to have sex or appear on television."
"Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically by definition be disqualified from ever doing so."
"Andy Warhol is the only genius I've ever known with an IQ of 60"
"A good deed never goes unpunished."
"Fifty percent of people won't vote, and fifty percent don't read newspapers. I hope it's the same fifty percent."
"The four most beautiful words in our common language: I told you so."
