VIDAL, GORE - Point to Point Navigation : A Memoir 1964 to 2006

Title: Point to Point Navigation : A Memoir 1964 to 2006
Description: 2006. 1st Edition, Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Point to Point Navigation : A Memoir 1964 to 2006.Vidal, Gore. Little, Brown 2006. Hardcover, 277 pages, illustrated. A very clean, bright first edition. Glossy, price-clipped jacket with only a few light surface markings. Spine lean to book, gift inscription to half-title page, otherwise clean and unmarked, pages lightly age toned at the edges. From his desks in Ravello and the Hollywood Hills, Gore Vidal travels in memory through the arenas of literature, television, film, theatre, politics, and international society, where he has cut a broad swath, recounting achievements and defeats, friends and enemies made (and on a number of occasions lost). Among the gathering of notables to be found in these pages, Tennessee Williams, Eleanor Roosevelt, Orson Welles, Greta Garbo, and Francis Ford Coppola. Some of the book's most moving pages are devoted to the illness and death of his partner of five decades, Howard Austen, and indeed the book is, among other things, a meditation on mortality written in the spirit of Montaigne.
