The City and the Pillar Gore Vidal
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group



Sometimes recalls aloud — just as I repeat back to him — the epigraph of Gore Vidal's great novel about youth and loss, The City and the Pillar. His literary talents were prodigious, though he scandalized the elites early in his career by writing a novel openly celebrating homosexuality. That 1948 novel, The City and the Pillar, was dedicated to Jimmie Trimble. In Zamboanga City, the Virgin of the Pillar has been venerated for almost four centuries as the patroness of the city and in the Archdiocese of Zamboanga. Vidal wasn't invited to the field rededication. The author, essayist, playwright, screenwriter and gay icon was 86 years old, whose most well-known novels were Myra Breckinridge, Two Sisters and Lincoln. He thought Britain's intelligence service was called 'M Sixteen'). It also imparts which of the celebrity's books, characters or songs is the most beloved among one's circle. Vidal's hugely controversial, ground-breaking 1948 novel The City and the Pillar, which had a whole bunch of gay stuff in it that was most certainly not casually accepted at the time, was black-listed by The New York Times. Patricia Highsmith's The Price of Salt was one of the inspirations for Lolita, and compared to Gore Vidal's The City and the Pillar (written around the same time) was much more daring. To make a living, Vidal started writing for television, theater and film. We're inviting the city of Seattle. He'd dedicated his novel The City and the Pillar to "JT" when it was published in 1948. But he never forgot Trimble, either. Turns out, everyone has read Crazy Salad and The City and the Pillar, and adores “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”. In 1948, his novel The City and the Pillar, with its overtly homoerotic theme, was pilloried by The New York Times. Usually updated every Sunday, but more often at the moment to make up for a short hiatus (of writing not reading). I have challenged myself to read 52 books in 52 weeks and review each of them.
