“The Dead Gook.” In Discovery, No. 1, edited by John W. Aldridge and Vance Bourjaily, 56–76. New York: Pocket Books, December, softcover.

Story about a jungle patrol with partisans in the Philippines. In his prefatory “advertisement” to this story, 52.2 and 53.2 in Advertisements for Myself (59.13), Mailer notes that he has “no great pride in them, because they are respectable. They make no attempt to raise the house an inch or two.” Rpt: 59.13, 67.11, 68.32, 82.19.
