Washington, D. C. by Gore Vidal is the sixth in his Narratives of Empire series of historical novels (although the first one published, in 1967). It begins in 1937 and continues into the Cold War, tracing the families of Senator James Burden Day and influential newspaper publisher Blaise Sanford.
This book is the least historical and most novelistic of any of the seven books. The Golden Age, the seventh book in the series, takes place during nearly the same span of years with many of the same characters, and needed to be written around the events of Washington D.C.
