Two Sisters (1970)
Edition Details:

Language: English

  • "A book of three parts, all somewhat interlarded. It contains a story (a fiction) about Vidal's love affair with a beautiful set of twins; a screenplay and notebook...; and Vidal's own vast digression on contemporary life and letters... The fictional segment... is very artfully done... The auxiliary characters are nothing short of dazzling. Marietta Donegal, an aging seductress... is magnificent; and, directly across the spectrum, Murray Morris, a Hollywood hustler with a penchant for flagellation, is a character of the richest comicality... Behind [Vidal's] humor is a comic vision that looks across America and sees a forest of cultural absurdity, intellectual madness and social chaos. Within this forest, he has become our leading hatchet man." Book World
  • "Most entertaining when he gets mad enough to say evil things... The script of the movie has something to do with Mr. Vidal's step-sister-by-marriage, Madame Aristotle Onassis..." The New York Times Book Review
  • "A work of perfect genius!" Gore Vidal
  • "Vidal's best book!" Associated Press
  • "Worthy of America's finest essayist." New Statesman
