Vidal's Villa

Slightly sad to see this article about Gore Vidal selling his Italian villa. I LOVE Vidal. He is the only living avatar of a particular kind of fiction-writing that I especially admire (Robert Graves and Anthony Burgess as precursors): historical novels, interestingly informed by strong opinions about present-day life. My favorite: Julian. But lots of other good ones too.
