  5. Williwaw.

    Williwaw.

    First edition, first printing of the author's first book. The dedication copy signed by Vidal on the title page and inscribed simply beneath the printed dedication the Vidal's mother, "[For Nina] all my love -". That Gore Vidal's life brimmed to the extent that it did with enduring female friendships - among his closest confidantes were Joanne Woodward, Susan Sarandon, and Joan Collins - harshly underscores the troubled relationship the author had with his mother.
