Synopsis: In 1939 a teenaged science prodigy is summoned to the Smithsonian and becomes involved in a scheme to change history. Combining themes from his American history novels with those from what Vidal calls his "inventions" ("Myra Breckinridge; Live from Golgotha"), "The Smithsonian Institution" presents a tour de force of outrageous satire and social commentary, seriousness and high spirits, autobiography and reportage, science fiction and historical romance, full of quintessentially Vidalian jokes Print ads. Author publicity (General Fiction) .
