By Gore Vidal, 1965.

Paperback format. 150 pages. Illustrated throughout.

The City and the Pillar is the third published novel by American writer Gore Vidal, written in 1946 and published on January 10, 1948. The story is about a young man who is coming of age and discovers his own homosexuality.
