Letter to Herman Kogan, Book Review Editor, Chicago Sun-Times, 18 December. Complaint about comments in reviews of The Deer Park (55.4) that Mailer had “‘cleaned up’ the book to satisfy the demands of G.P. Putnam’s, my publisher.” He explains that the book was not bowdlerized and is actually 50 pages longer than the Rinehart version. In Advertisements for Myself (59.13), Mailer recalls that this letter was sent to “twenty-odd newspapers.”
