We've lost another American author of significance. Thank you, Norman Mailer, for your insightful work over the years.

Let's hope there are new Norman Mailers in the making.

I found out he/Mailer stabbed his (2nd?) wife, she didn't press charges. Almost died.

I couldn't recall earlier, the guy he got paroled was a good writer. His book was Belly of the Beast.
Stabbed the waiter/restaurant owners son.

i think it shows some prisoners do not deserve parole. mailer lobbied for it, i've never herd mailer's comments after the parolee F'ed up.

Funny thing about people in jail, plenty of them are talented.
