Daily Dose

From United State: Essays 1952 - 1992, by Gore Vidal


"Today one is never quite certain why memoirists are so eager to tell us what they do in bed.  Unless the autobiographer has a case to be argued, I suspect that future readers will skip those sexual details that our writers have so generously shared with us in order to get to the gossip and the jokes."

From Edmund Wilson: This Critic and This Gin and These Shoes
