Publisher's Summary

It is 1917, and President Woodrow Wilson is about to lead the country into the Great War in Europe. In California, a new industry is born that will irreversibly transform America. Caroline Sanford, the alluring heroine of Empire, discovers the power of moving pictures to manipulate reality as she vaults to screen stardom under the name of Emma Traxler. Just as Caroline must balance her two lives - West Coast movie star and East Coast newspaper publisher and senator’s mistress - so too must America balance its two power centers: Hollywood and Washington. Here is history as only Gore Vidal can re-create it: brimming with intrigue and scandal, peopled by the greats of the silver screen and American politics.

“Hollywood shimmers with the illusion of politics and the politics of illusion.” --Chicago Sun-Times

“A wonderfully literate and consistently impressive work of fiction that clearly belongs on a shelf with Vidal’s best.” --The New York Times Book Review
