A handsome first edition/first printing in unread Fine condition in Fine dust-jacket. Signed by author Gore Vidal directly on the title page.
Vidal's crowning achievement, a vibrant tapestry of American political and cultural life from 1939 to 1954, when the epochal events of World War II and the Cold War transformed America, once and for all, for good or ill, from a republic into an empire. In addition to presidents, the actual characters who appear so vividly in the pages of The Golden Age include Eleanor Roosevelt, Wendell Willkie, William Randolph Hearst, Dean Acheson, Tennessee Williams - and Gore Vidal himself.
