HH 80th anniversary recommendation: 'Burr'

19 December, 2016
Author: Gore Vidal
Genre: Fiction
Category: Literary Happenings

In 2016, Heywood Hill celebrated its 80th anniversary. In honour of the occasion, distinguished authors were asked to share the single book - published in English in the last 80 years - that has meant the most to them and to provide a three-word justification for their choice. 


Michael Dobbs, creator of 'House of Cards', chose 'Burr' by Gore Vidal:

"Pompous. Insufferable. Brilliant"


This idea was inspired by our popular literary subscription service 'A Year in Books'. Find out more here
