Review:

An engrossing and beguiling read. Admirably candid, refreshingly indiscreet, intelligent and full of wit, it is also startlingly original...And unequivocal triumph. ( William Boyd, DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOKS OF THE YEAR)

He does not narrate his life: he revies it. The result is something quite novel and wonderfully appealing, a critical biography of himself...Vidal's life might even be his greatest work. ( INDEPENDENT)

Wonderfully entertaining. You want the high-level political gossip? You get it here... it offers all the zing of a Dry Martini without the danger of getting drunk. ( DAILY TELEGRAPH)

PALIMPSEST is a tremendous read, down and dirty from start to finish. It is also a proud and serious and truthful book... ( SUNDAY TIMES)

About the Author:
