The City and the Pillar Gore Vidal
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group



Just finished Gore Vidal's “The City and the Pillar,” a novel to which I should have treated myself years ago. Bernard Levin described Vidal's third novel, The City and The Pillar, published in 1948 when he was 23 and written two years before as the “first serious American homosexual novel”. That 1948 novel, The City and the Pillar, was dedicated to Jimmie Trimble. His literary talents were prodigious, though he scandalized the elites early in his career by writing a novel openly celebrating homosexuality. Every year, in May or June, Chiang Mai's Inthakhin Pillar on Wat Chedi Luang is at the centre of ceremonies that go back to the city's foundation in 1296. REVIEW: As one of the first novels about homosexuality, the story is contemporary and interestingly relevant to the exploration of one's sexuality. The golden pillar, standing in the center of the temple, is joined by a second pillar made by Rama I'VE. Vidal is the author of multiple novels, including Burr (the first in his Narratives of Empire series), The City and the Pillar, and Myra Breckinridge. €�Once you start talking to people and they make the choice of a place to sit, you start getting the impression that you're moving from place to place, that you're covering the entire city from pillar to post, really. He was even forced to work under pseudonyms during the 1950s. His third novel, The City and the Pillar, featured a homosexual as a main character and bookshops refused to stock it. Every single pillar is supposed to feature a neighbourhood map, right on the skinny part that faces the sidewalk. But I probably wasn't ready to read it then. Was a premature gay martyr (on this, you don't know half the story: see Neil McKenna's The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde on his underground activities), and therefore a “natural” topic for the author of The City and the Pillar. €�It is my wish to photograph people of all nationalities, who have made the decision to move from Ireland for economic reasons[:] in and around the city, juxtaposed with landscapes that are significant to their pasts. Gore Vidal: (October 3, 1925- present). After publishing a Hemingway-style war novel when he was barely twenty, he attracted unusual attention in 1948 with his third novel, The City and the Pillar.
