Vidal Quote[edit]

Is it needful to have the Vidal quote displayed so prominenently? Vidal disliked other authors and one catty remark does not seem to merit an entire paragraph. V. Joe (talk) 16:06, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Henry Kissinger "the war itself"[edit]

I've been unable to verify Henry Kissinger's quote describing Wouk's novels War and Remembrance and The Winds of War as "the war itself". I've searched all of the databases that I have access to (JSTOR, LexisNexis and others) and have come up with nothing except for a 2010 Newsweek article that postdates the quote's inclusion here. Since the author of the Newsweek piece may have gotten his information from this Wikipedia article, I don't want to cite it. Does anyone have a source for this quote?

Cleanup needed in Selected Books[edit]

Some cleanup is needed in the Selected Books section. "The Lomokome Papers" is duplicated, once in 1947 and once in 1968. The first one has a parenthetical reference that says "(see )", which needs to be fixed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jonesey95 (talkcontribs) 04:54, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
