Conference Remarks. In Transcript of Proceedings of the 20-24 August International Writers’ Conference: “The Novel Today,” Edinburgh, 138 pp. Court stenographer’s mimeographed transcript (replete with egregious, humorous, errors) is a fascinating document. Mailer speaks several times, and co-chairs the final day’s session, “The Novel and the Future.” Details Mailer’s interaction with Mary McCarthy, Lawrence Durrell, William Burroughs, and his comments on Das Kapital. In 2012, a limited edition of the proceedings, titled The Novel Today: Edinburgh International Festival 1962, edited by Andrew Hook, was published an Edinburgh publisher, Kennedy and Boyd. See 65.1, 65.13, 81.21, 92.12, 96.7, 13.2, 312-15.
