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.

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.

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.
