Over twenty years before Hollywood exhorted critics not to reveal the secret of The Crying Game, Gore Vidal and his publishers had great success with the same tactic on this iconic novel from the late 1960s. There was no press tour. There was not even an advance review for critics. The public smelled blood, and the lack of official publicity ensured there was great attention to this “underground” novel. In terms of popular culture, it stands alongside Valley of the Dolls and Auntie Mame, but is better written than either.
