About the Author

Born in 1923 in Long Branch, New Jersey, and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Norman Mailer was one of the most influential writers of the second half of the twentieth century and a leading public intellectual for nearly sixty years. He is the author of more than thirty books. The Castle in the Forest, his last novel, was his eleventh New York Times bestseller. His first novel, The Naked and the Dead, has never gone out of print. His 1968 nonfiction narrative, The Armies of the Night, won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He won a second Pulitzer for The Executioner's Song and is the only person to date to have won Pulitzers in both fiction and nonfiction. Five of his books were nominated for National Book Awards, and he won a lifetime achievement award from the National Book Foundation in 2005. Norman Mailer died in 2007 in New York City.

Reviews

"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
