Gore Vidal never lacked for labels: Witty, irreverent, and shrewd, a propagandist, a truth-teller, and an agent provocateur. Dramatist, novelist, screenwriter, actor, and public debater. In THE EDUCATION OF GORE VIDAL, a broad cast of interviewees illuminates Vidal's work, his life, his contradictions, and his ability to dramatize and animate history, while sticking to the truth.
