'No American writer in the twentieth century has lived a life richer in incident, achievement and glittering association than gore Vidal.
In Point to Point Navigation, this celebrated novelist, essayist, critic and controversialist ranges freely over that life with his signature wit and literary elegance.  The title refers to a form of navigation he resorted to as a first mate in the navy during the Second World War.  he says, 'As I was writing this account of my life and times since Palimpsest, I felt as if I were again dealing with those capes and rocks in the Bering Sea that we had to navigate so often with a compass made inoperable by weather.'  It is a beautifully apt analogy for the hazards (mostly) eluded during his eventual life.'
