One of my favorite satire books and by my favorite author Gore Vidal . However whoever constructed this e-book really did a poor job at it I would rather pay you know around two or three times as much I paid for this which was 360 so meaning I would pay $10 for a better constructed e-book that was section and had chapters in section breaks like a regular e-book does instead of having it be written as one big long file with no page breaks no nothing as this e-book. And when I bought this I also thought because it was listed with the Mira Beckenridge/Myron this would be too since it was listed as that and it wasn't.

50 years ago he was the most famous author in the world and this book proves why. Way before its time and absolutely breath taking to read even from a modern perspective. Young gay men and intellectuals in general should read all of his works. Its sad Ayn Rand is the only antique author anyone remembers in these times

If you are interested in reading some of Gore Vidal's works, I would recommend BURR or LINCOLN instead. Myra Breckenridge is just a mess. Maybe this is some sort of transgender novel of liberation for some, but I think it is really more of a bad acid trip combined with cheap exploitation. By all means, do not see the movie based on the book, which Vidal even said was horrific. There is a reason this book is 99 cents on Amazon and Burr is $10.99.

Not one of Gore's better works. Read it for historical value to say I have read it.

New favorite book. I would have never guessed that (even after years of fascination with queer theory and culture) this book from nearly half a century ago would prompt me to view gender and sexuality through a new lens. Plus, it is hilarious. Needless to say, I should have read Myra long ago.
