Tim Teeman Gets 'In Bed With Gore Vidal'

  "The difference between Italian boys and American boys,” the great Gore Vidal said, “is the Italian boys have dirty feet and clean assholes, while American boys have clean feet and dirty assholes.”
Fab review in GayCityNews for Tim Teeman's upcoming biography, "In Bed With Gore Vidal," out Nov. 5 from Magnus Books.

Doug Ireland writes:
A young gay British journalist, Tim Teeman – a 14-year veteran of the Times of London, most recently as its U.S. correspondent in New York — has assiduously tracked Vidal’s sexual and affectional history in a juicy new page-turner of a book, “In Bed With Gore Vidal: Hustlers, Hollywood, and the Private World of an American Master.”
But Teeman’s meticulously sourced account — based on extensive interviews with Vidal’s friends, relatives, servants, pimps, confidants, editors, and tricks — is much more than just a collection of salacious details, although these are present in abundance. He’s also produced a penetrating analysis of how all this impacted Vidal’s literary output and his worldview, in particular his attitudes toward sex.
