The City and the Pillar is the third novel by American writer and essayist Gore Vidal. Written in 1946 and first published in 1948, it sparked a public scandal for being the first book by an accepted American author to portray overt homosexuality as a natural behavior. In 1965, Vidal changed the ending to what he had originally in mind, no longer having to bow to the wishes of his publisher, in The City and the Pillar Revised.
