“Getting Spooky About Writing with Norman Mailer.” Article-interview by Michael Lee. Cape Cod Voice, 30 January, 1–2. Mailer talks mainly about the writing process, best sellers, writing courses, and the perils of the literary world in this fine interview with an old friend, who is also a novelist. “I don’t think I’ve ever started a new novel without wondering if it was all gone. Before I started The Naked and the Dead I was convinced I was through as a writer, that my best writing was behind me, and that’s repeated in every book.”
