Synopsis: It is a risky (and risque) business becoming 'Woman Triumphant' - exercising total power over men like Rusty Godowski. Rusty just wants to be a Hollywood star like everyone else at Buck Loner's academy, but now that Buck's niece, Myra Breckinridge, has arrived, the curriculum is taking a wildly strange turn. Willing to risk all to be superb and unique, Myra means to prove to her old friend Dr Montag that it is possible to work out in life all one's fantasies - and survive. 'From Myra's fist appearnce on the page she was a megastar', explains her creator, Gore Vidal. Myra caused a second furore when she returned in Myron to battle it out with her eponymous alter ego, a drab little man fallen into marriage and a job in Chinese catering. Theirs is a contest of hormonal roulette, with glorious Myra off on time-travelling missions of mercy back to 1948 to try to change cinema history and to introduce her own radical theories of popuation control. Meanwhile Myron tries desperately to stay in the present as inconspicuously as Mrya will allow.

About the Author: Gore Vidal wrote his first novel, Williwaw at the age of nineteen while overseas in World War II. Since then he has written plays, short stories, essays, films and television scripts and has been a Democratic activist.

Book Description Penguin Classics, 1997. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: When Myra Breckinridge first appeared in 1968, critics were delighted, baffled, and somewhat appalled by this comedy of sex change. Thirty years later, Myra has become literature's most famous transsexual. In the sequel, Myron (1974), the Breckinridge saga takes an increasingly bizarre turn. Vidal combines time travel with the ultimate Hollywood fantasy, as Myra attempts to alter cinema history. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0141180285
