VIDAL LOCO

 

Vidal Loco by Christopher Hitchens Vanity Fair Jan/Feb 2010 

“…if it’s true even to any degree that we were all changed by September 11, 2001, it’s probably truer of Vidal that it made him more the way he already was, and accentuated a crackpot strain that gradually asserted itself as dominant. If you look at his writings from that time, thrown together in a couple of cheap paperbacks entitled Dreaming War and Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, you will find the more crass notions of Michael Moore or Oliver Stone being expressed in language that falls some distance short of the Wildean ideal.” 

I just finished reading Martin Amis’ book The Second Plane: September 11: Terror and Boredom and consider it a must read.  The cover image of the aforementioned book links to the Amazon page.
