Book Description
In Point to Point Navigation, the celebrated novelist, essayist, critic, and controversialist Gore Vidal ranges freely over his remarkable life with the signature wit and literary elegance that are uniquely his. The title refers to a form of navigation he restored to as a first mate in the Navy during World War Two. As he says, “As I was writing this account of my life and times since Palimpsest, I felt as if I were again dealing with those capes and rocks and rocks in the Bering Sea that we had to navigate so often with a compass made inoperable by weather.” It is a beautiful apt analogy for the hazards (mostly) eluded during his eventful life and for the way this memoir proceeds – far from linear but always on course.
