Norman Mailer was one of the towering figures of twentieth-century American letters and an acknowledged master of the essay. Mind of an Outlaw, the first posthumous publication from this outsize literary icon, collects Mailers most important and representative work in the form that many rank as his most electrifying.
As Americas foremost public intellectual, Norman Mailer was a ubiquitous presence in our national life--on the airwaves and in print--for more than sixty years. With his supple mind and pugnacious persona, he engaged society more than any other writer of his generation. The trademark Mailer swagger is much in evidence in these pages as he holds forth on culture, ideology, politics, sex, gender, and celebrity, among other topics. Here is Mailer on boxing, Mailer on Hemingway, Mailer on Marilyn Monroe, and, of course, Mailer on Mailer--the one subject that served as the beating heart of all of his nonfiction.
From his early essay A Credo for the Living, published in 1948, when the author was twenty-five, to his final writings in the year before his death, Mailer wrestled with the big themes of his times. He was one of the most astute cultural commentators of the postwar era, a swashbuckling intellectual provocateur who never pulled a punch and was rarely anything less than interesting. Mind of an Outlaw spans the full arc of Mailers evolution as a writer, including such essential pieces as his acclaimed 1957 meditation on hipsters, The White Negro; multiple selections from his seminal collection Advertisements for Myself; and a never-before-published essay on Sigmund Freud.
Incendiary, erudite, and unrepentantly outrageous, Norman Mailer was a dominating force on the battlefield of ideas. Featuring an incisive Introduction by Jonathan Lethem, Mind of an Outlaw forms a fascinating portrait of Mailers intellectual development across the span of his career as well as the preoccupations of a nation in the last half of the American century.
Praise for Mind of an Outlaw

Описание: A key backlist title from the highly acclaimed author of "The Naked and the Dead and The Fight". War her ex-Congressman, a professor of 'popular but somewhat notorious reputation', television personality and husband of the rich and beautiful Deborah ('a girl who would have been bored by a diamond as big as the Ritz'), Stephen Rojack lived the "American Dream". But his enviable life concealed a strange tension, the constant 'itch to jump', and when one day he finally cracks and strangles his luscious wife, he unleashes a personality of undreamt-of ferocity. A wanted murderer, Rojack is suddenly catapulted into an alien world of gangsters, crumbling tenements and downtown bars. Here, he meets Cherry, a small-time singer who ekes out her living in sleazy nightclubs, waiting for a break. She's the woman Rojack falls for, dangerously, desperately, tragically! A powerful exploration of one man's quest for depravity, "An American Dream" shocked the USA on first publication in 1965 with its graphic depictions of sex and violence. One of the key works of twentieth-century American literature, the novel's white-hot prose makes it, for many, Mailer's finest achievement.

Описание: "It is impossible to walk away from this novel without being sharply reminded of the fact that Norman Mailer is a writer of extraordinary ability."--Chicago Tribune
Featuring a new foreword by Mailer scholar Maggie McKinley
Published nearly twenty years after Norman Mailer's fiction debut, The Naked and the Dead, this acclaimed novel further solidified the author's stature as one of the most important figures in contemporary American literature. Ranald "D. J." Jethroe, Texas's most precocious teenager, recounts a brutal hunting trip he took to Alaska--in a story of fathers and sons, myth and masculinity, character and corruption.

Описание: In this landmark work of journalism, Norman Mailer reports on the presidential conventions of 1968, the turbulent year from which today s bitterly divided country arose. The Vietnam War was raging; Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy had just been assassinated. In August, the Republican Party met in Miami and picked Richard Nixon as their candidate, to little fanfare. But when the Democrats backed Lyndon Johnson s ineffectual vice president, Hubert Humphrey, the city of Chicago erupted. Antiwar protesters filled the streets and the police ran amok, beating and arresting demonstrators and delegates alike, all broadcast on live television and captured in these pages by one of America s fiercest intellects.
Praise for "Miami and the Siege of Chicago"
For historians who wish for the presence of a world-class literary witness at crucial moments in history, Mailer in Miami and Chicago was heaven-sent. Michael Beschloss, "The Washington Post"
Extraordinary . . . Mailer predicted that] we will be fighting for forty years. He got that right, among many other things. Christopher Hitchens, "The Atlantic"
Often reads like a good, old-fashioned novel in which suspense, character, plot revelations, and pungently describable action abound. "The New York Review of Books"
A] masterful account . . . To understand 1968, you must read Mailer. "Chicago Tribune""

Описание: A genuine literary event--an illuminating collection of correspondence from one of the most acclaimed American writers of all time

Over the course of a nearly sixty-year career, Norman Mailer wrote more than 30 novels, essay collections, and nonfiction books. Yet nowhere was he more prolific--or more exposed--than in his letters. All told, Mailer crafted more than 45,000 pieces of correspondence (approximately 20 million words), many of them deeply personal, keeping a copy of almost every one. Now the best of these are published--most for the first time--in one remarkable volume that spans seven decades and, it seems, several lifetimes. Together they form a stunning autobiographical portrait of one of the most original, provocative, and outspoken public intellectuals of the twentieth century.

Compiled by Mailer's authorized biographer, J. Michael Lennon, and organized by decade, Selected Letters of Norman Mailer features the most fascinating of Mailer's missives from 1940 to 2007--letters to his family and friends, to fans and fellow writers (including Truman Capote, James Baldwin, and Philip Roth), to political figures from Henry Kissinger to Bill and Hillary Clinton, and to such cultural icons as John Lennon, Marlon Brando, and even Monica Lewinsky.

Here is Mailer the precocious Harvard undergraduate, writing home to his parents for the first time and worrying that his acceptances by literary magazines were "all happening too easy." Here, too, is Mailer the soldier, confronting the violence of war in the Pacific, which would become the subject of his masterly debut novel, The Naked and the Dead " I'm] amazed how casually it fits into . . . daily life, how very unhorrible it all is." Mailer the international celebrity pledges to William Styron, "I'm going to write every day, and like Lot's Wife I'm consigning myself to a pillar of salt if I dare to look back," while the 1980s Mailer agonizes over the fallout from his ill-fated friendship with Jack Henry Abbott, the murderer who became his literary protege. ("The continuation of our relationship was depressing for both of us," he confesses to Joyce Carol Oates.) At last, he finds domestic--and erotic--bliss in the arms of his sixth wife, Norris Church ("We bounce into each other like sunlight").

Whether he is reflecting on the Kennedy assassination, assessing the merits of authors from Fitzgerald to Proust, or threatening to pummel William Styron, the brilliant, pugnacious Norman Mailer comes alive again in these letters. The myriad faces of this artist and activist, lover and fighter, public figure and private man, are laid bare in this collection as never before.

Praise for Selected Letters of Norman Mailer

"Extraordinary."--Vanity Fair

"As massive as the life they document . . . the autobiography Mailer] never wrote . . . a kind of map, from the hills and rice paddies of the Philippines through every victory and defeat for the rest of the century and beyond."--Esquire

"The shards and winks at Mailer's own past that are scattered throughout the letters . . . are so tantalizing. They glitter throughout like unrefined jewels that Mailer took to the grave."--The New Yorker

"Indispensable . . . a subtle document of an unsubtle man's wit and erudition, even (or especially) when it's wielded as a weapon."--New York

"Umpteen pleasures to pluck out and roll between your teeth, like seeds from a pomegranate."--The New York Times
