“In Re: Sidney Hook.” Letter to the editor. Dissent 1 (summer), 303. Mailer refuses to recant his “facetious” description of Sidney Hook in 54.1 as a “liberal-with-muscles.” He ends by saying that if Hook is “an almost lone philosophical defender of democratic socialist and humanist values, it makes me Leo Tolstoy.”
