The Judgment of Paris By GORE VIDAL

Author of Dark Green, Bright Red, The City and the Pillar, Williwaw, etc.

The most versatile of the younger novelists who have helped shape American letters during the last decade, Gore Vidal has written in The Judgment of Paris, a major novel.

He has retold in modern terms the ancient legend of Paris and the Golden Apple and the result is an extraordinary novel of a young American's year in post-war Italy, Egypt and France, of his adventures among the foreign cities, of his affairs with three temptresses, goddesses in modern terms, and finally of the decision he makes.

The journey of the hero Philip Warren is told brilliantly and the strangers who come his way—the vice-ridden Lord Glenellen, Zoe Helotius the celebrated hostess, Mr. Willys who wants to be killed, the various lovers, sacred and profane are all wittily and splendidly fashioned, a counterpoint to Mr. Vidal's theme: the true nature of the old gods and their war against the anti-human, the dogmatists. It is a novel of great splendor and fire.
