The Death of Gore Vidal

I haven't read as many of Gore Vidal's books as I probably should have done, which is surprising as the two I have, Washington DC and Julian, are brilliant novels which I enjoyed reading immensely. Julian, in particular, which I bought many years ago while on holiday in Austria, where I read it within a matter of  days, has always lingered strongly in my memories. It had a huge influence on my attitude towards monotheistic religions and the old religions of Rome and the ancient world.
