Dear Friend of the Nation,
eBook Gore Vidal
Gore Vidal's State of the Union: Nation Essays, 1958–2005 is available in paperback and digital format for tablets, smartphones and computers.

Gore Vidal was the pre-eminent essayist of his generation, and he wrote for The Nation over a span of forty-seven years, becoming a contributing editor in 1981. That same year, The Nation published his explosive first essay for editor Victor Navasky, "Some Jews and the Gays," which is included here. This collection also exemplifies the best of his critical vision with other great essays like "Requiem for the American Empire," "Monotheism and Its Discontents," "Notes on Our Patriarchal State" and "The Birds and the Bees"—and its Monica Lewinsky–era sequel, "The Birds and the Bees and Clinton."

Editor Richard Lingeman's advice: "Prepare to have your preconceptions challenged. Prepare also to smile or laugh out loud."

Best of all, by purchasing e-books through eBookNation, you'll help to sustain The Nation's journalism while supporting our writers and progressive ideals.
