About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The City and The Pillar / a novel by Vidal, Gore.

Description:

"Second Printing" stated to DJ front flap, which is unclipped and still bears original $3.50 price. Copyright page states "First Printing January 1948 / Second Printing February 1948." A bit of sun-fading to jacket spine. The author's previous novels are listed as "Williwaw" and "In a Yellow Wood." Book will close its text block and we grade "very good," though there's a horizontal stress line across the front board. The tale of a young man who discovers his own homosexuality as he comes of age, "The City and the Pillar" was considered significant as the first post-World War II novel whose openly gay and well-adjusted protagonist was not killed off at the end of the story for defying social norms. The book was also considered scandalous; Vidal later said "shock was the most pleasant emotion aroused in the press." The New York Times refused to accept paid advertising for the title, and neither the Times nor any other major newspaper or magazine would review any of Gore's novels for the ensuing six years, forcing him to publish under pseudonyms including "Edgar Box." Ah, the ever "tolerant" Left. 314 pp. Reduced from $105. Bookseller Inventory #
