Mailer Plays Devil’s Advocate.” Article-interview by Bob Minzesheimer. USA Today, 15 January, 1D–2D. Mailer states that the incest he posits in Hitler’s family “can’t be proven, but the facts of his life suggest it. There’s a great possibility that Hitler was a first or second degree incestuary,” a word Mailer made up for the novel. He added, “I’m never going to be revered for the intricacy and beauty of my plots.”
