THE CITY AND THE PILLAR, GORE VIDAL ASTERIOS POLYP, DAVID MAZZUCCHELLI THE BEST AMERICAN NONREQUIRED READING 2009…I look forward to the new collection every year! But he never forgot Trimble, either. The City and the Pillar by Gore Vidal. Our book group read this as a sort of homage to the author, who died earlier this year. Bangkok City Pillar Shrine & The Guardian spirits in the City Pillar Shrine Bangkok Province Thailand Bangkok City Pillar Shrine is the important place of Thai people. With more than 200 of the biggest names and greatest minds from the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area present, our first pillar event, DC UpFront, has been deemed a huge success.

"I have begun writing what I have said I'd never write, a memoir ('I am not my own subject,' I used to say with icy superiority)." From the Preface to Gore Vidal's The City and the Pillar and Seven Early Stories. Vidal's hugely controversial, ground-breaking 1948 novel The City and the Pillar, which had a whole bunch of gay stuff in it that was most certainly not casually accepted at the time, was black-listed by The New York Times. His first success, though, was his third novel, "The City and The Pillar," published in 1948. It's near the Supreme Court, opposite to Wat Phra Kaeo.

I wanted to do a professional job and ask good, thoughtful, intelligent questions. Vidal wasn't invited to the field rededication. His literary talents were prodigious, though he scandalized the elites early in his career by writing a novel openly celebrating homosexuality. The City and the Pillar was the first gay novel that I read, unaware that it had practically killed his career in the 1950s, forcing him to work under pseudonyms. The New York Times refused to review his next five books.
