“Norman Mailer to Undergo Test in Wife Stabbing.” New York Herald Post wire service article, 22 November. Diagnosed as having "an acute paranoid breakdown with delusional thinking" by Dr. Conrad Rosenberg, Mailer challenged the report as “gratuitous and presumptuous. My pride is that as a sane man I can explore areas of experience that other men are afraid of.” He told the magistrate, “I insist I am sane.” The police found a two and half inch pocket knife in his pocket at the time of arrest.
