Gore Vidal and the Radical Party
On July 31, American author, screenwriter and liberal political activist Gore Vidal died at his home in Los Angeles. He was 86 years old. "Enfant terrible" of American culture was one of the giants of American literature, like Norman Mailer and Truman Capote. Gifted with a sharp sense of observation and thorugh his novels, short stories and essays, he offered an unconventional and bold vision of the world. At the age of 22, in 1948, he caused scandal with his novel "The Statue of Salt", prompting criticism from the American press not exactly enthusiastic, for having openly addressed the issue of homosexuality.
In the early nineties Vidal, who used to spend long periods of his life in Rome in an apartment close to Largo di Torre Argentina, joined the Radical Party and took part in the Congress of 1992.
