“Norman Mailer, 80, Celebrates Survival, Worries about Writing.” Article-interview by Hillel Italie. AP wire story, 29 January. Mailer talks frankly about his various impairments, and how he sees aging “as analogous to being an old freighter and to sail through heavy seas you have to through some things overboard. You give up certain senses. In my case, I wanted to keep my mind reasonably alive.”
