Since the publication of his first novel in 1946, Gore Vidal has been one of America's most successful writers, as well as one of its most outspoken public figures. The author of more than twenty novels-including The City and the Pillar, Myra Breckinridge, Burr, and Lincoln-as well as several books of nonfiction, plays, and screenplays, Gore Vidal has been a leading man of American letters for more than half a century. As the first comprehensive bibliography of Gore Vidal in nearly thirty years, this volume charts the entire range of Vidal's career, as well as the abundant amount of criticism and scholarship he has received. This exhaustive record covers the entire span of Vidal's sixty years of writing, from his first novel, Williwaw, in 1946, to his 2006 memoir Point to Point Navigation. Divided into three sections-works by Gore Vidal, Vidal in translation, and works about Vidal-the bibliography cites all of his books, contributions to books and periodicals, theatrical plays, television plays, screenplays, and adaptations of his work into various media (films, miniseries, recorded books, e-books, etc.). In addition, this volume chronicles the immense amount of criticism that Vidal has received, either in monographs, scholarly essays, newspaper coverage, book reviews, or elsewhere. Within these divisions there are numerous subdivisions, generally arranged thematically to cover the full scope and breadth of Vidal's work and of work about him.
