it was ok
Read from May 19 to 27, 2010

A worthwhile and rather sly yarn with a fairly unnecessary sequel. My rather cursory understanding of who Mr. Vidal is colored my approach, causing me to look more for social commentary rather than to follow just the story, or strength of prose, which is probably what allowed me to finish the "Myron" story. Read the Myra, enjoy the humor, furrow your brow at the excessively lewd parts (which don't feel justified, and make you wonder just what Mr. Vidal was up to) and skip the Myron.
