Viking, Harmondsworth, first British edition, 1985. Two-tone cloth, 8vo, 24 cm,. 718 pp, ills. From the blurb: "Norman Mailer has dominated the American literary scene since he burst into prominence at the age of twenty-five with the publication of The Naked and the Dead. The author of more than twenty books, including An American Dream, The Armies of The Night, The Executioner's Song and Ancient Evenings, he is the preeminent novelist of his generation, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, a movie director, politician, pugilist, antiwar activist, hipster, philosopher, major cultural force and enfant terrible. The winner of every significant national literary award, never out of the limelight. Mailer has been maligned, loved, hated, belittled, idolized - but never ignored. Now, in a major biography that catches the full range of this extraordinary career, Peter Manso, noted reporter and interviewer for Playboy, presents Mailer in all his complexity and brilliance, in the words of those who have known him. Not since Edie has a book entered so entirely into a life and caught so fully the excitement and atmosphere of a period. Manso weaves together the words and recollections of Mailer's mother, sister, wives, lovers; his colleagues, admirers, detractors, and fellow writers, from James Baldwin and Kurt Vonnegut to E. L. Doctorow and George Plimpton - and, of course, Mailer himself. Among the contributors are William F. Buckley, Lillian Hellman, Allen Ginsberg, Alfred Kazin, Norman Podhoretz, Arthur Schlesinger, Liz Smith, Andy Warhol and Shelley Winters. Here are all the writing, fighting, drinking, brawling, living that have made Mailer a bigger-than-life legend, Manso relates, in the words of those who were there, the story of Mailer's childhood and years at Harvard, and the account of his experience as a foot soldier in World War II, which formed the basis of The Naked and the Dead, Here are the hectic years of the 1950s in Greenwich Village, the founding of The Village Voice, the drinking bouts with James Jones and James Baldwin. Manso outlines the wild years of the 1960s, the antiwar movement, the relationship with the Kennedys, the tragic stabbing of Mailer's second wife, and the triumphant publication of The Armies of the Night. The story describes the years in Provincetown, the relationship with Jack Henry Abbott, the publication of The Executioner's Song, and Mailer's return as a major novelist with the controversial best-seller Ancient Evenings. Mailer has stood at the center of the American era since the close of World War II. Manso captures the entire sweep of these tumultuous decades, from the war in the Pacific to the war in Vietnam to the present star wars. Mailer is at once a history of our time and of the protean figure who has presided over it. It is an extraordinary tapestry, a portrait of an era as well as a man. Here, at last, is a biography of Mailer as large and multifarious as its subject - and as overflowing with life. Mailer is a major literary event.
