"Wicked and provocative...Vidal's purview of Hollywood in one of its golden ages is fascinating."
CHICAGO TRIBUNE
In his brilliant and dazzling new novel, Gore Vidal sweeps us into one of the most fascinating periods of American political and social change. The time is 1917. In Washington, President Wilson is about to lead the United States into the Great War. In California, a new industry is born that will transform America: moving pictures. Here is history as only Gore Vidal can re-create it: brimming with intrigue and scandal, peopled by the greats of the silver screen and American politics, from Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks to Franklin D. Roosevelt and the author's own grandfather, the blind Senator Gore. With HOLLYWOOD, Vidal once again proves himself a superb storyteller and a perceptive chronicler of human nature's endless deceptions.
