Point To Point Navigation by Gore Vidal 

(Autobiography)

Writing from his desks in Ravello aand the Hollywood Hills, Vidal travels in memory through the arenas of literature, television, film, theatre, politics and international society where he has cut a wide swath, recounting achievements and defeats, friends and enemies made (and sometimes lost). From encounters with, among others, Jack and Jacqueline Kennedy, Tennessee Williams, Eleanor Roosevelt, Orson Welles, Johnny Carson, and Francis Ford Coppola, to the mournful passing of his longtime partner, Howard Auster, Vidal always steers his narrative with grace and flair. Entertaining, provo-cative, and often moving, Point to Point Navigation wonderfully captures the life of one of twentieth-century America’s most important writers.
