Gore Vidal Has Something to Say

“Never pass up the opportunity to have sex or appear on television,” the eminent historian and novelist Gore Vidal once said. Living up to his own dictum, here’s Gore Vidal appearing on C-SPAN’s Book TV from the Key West Literary Conference. He has some kind things to say about Family of Secrets, beginning at about the four-minute mark:

There’s a wonderful book, by the way, I’m reading called Family of Secrets by…Russ Baker. He spent many years on it. And it’s a family — forgive me, Bushes and Bushettes — a family of criminals. Why they’re not all in jail I don’t know. If I seem a little dazed, I’ve been reading about their crimes, and proposed crimes, and how they got away with it.
