Myra Breckinridge
by Gore Vidal and Camille Paglia




Overview -
The outrageous and immortal, gender-bending and polymorphously perverse, over-the-top, and utterly on-target comic masterpiece from the bestselling author of Burr, Lincoln, and the National Book Award-winning United States.

With a new introduction by Camille Paglia

I am Myra Breckinridge, whom no man will ever possess.

So begins the irresistible testimony of the luscious instructor of Empathy and Posture at Buck Loner's Academy of Drama and Modeling. Myra has a secret that only her surgeon shares; a passion for classic Hollywood films, which she regards as the supreme achievements of Western culture; and a sacred mission to bring heteronormative civilization to its knees.

Fifty years after its first publication unleashed gales of laughter, delight, and ferocious dissent (Has literary decency fallen so low? asked Time), Myra Breckinridge's moment to instruct and delight has once again arrived.
