“A Public Notice by Norman Mailer.” Village Voice, 9 May, 12. A paid statement on Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot” in which Mailer reverses his negative comments on the play given in his 2 May column (56.17). The statement contains Mailer’s first published statement of his personal belief in a limited God. Herbert Gold claimed in a 10 November article in the Nation that Mailer was “fired” from the Voice for what he wrote about “Godot.” Daniel Wolf, editor of the Voice, denied this in an 8 December letter to the Nation. Rpt: 59.13 (minus prefatory “Advertiser’s Note” in which Mailer explains that he has paid for this notice “rather than embarrass editorial caution by asking it to be printed otherwise.”)
