Book signed: "Gore Vidal", 5½x8¼, 308 pages. Dark Green/Bright Red, by Gore Vidal. NY: E. P. Dutton & Co., 1950. Hardcover with dust jacket. Signed on the title page. Gore Vidal's (1925-2012) 22 novels include Julian, Myra Breckinridge and the "American chronicles" series of historical political novels. His work as a screenwriter includes Ben-Hur and Visit to a Small Planet. He is also a playwright and essayist. Vidal's outspoken left-wing politics, homosexuality and atheism have made him a controversial figure. His series of ten, vitriolic debates with conservative pundit William Buckley during the presidential nominating conventions of 1968 are legendary. Vidal loved to ridicule American idols, calling Theodore Roosevelt "an American sissy" and the Kennedys "the holy family." Vidal observed: "There is not one human problem that could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise." Pages toned and stained (not effecting signature). Cover torn and lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
