“The Talent and the Torment.” Article-interview by Frederick Christian. Cosmopolitan, August, 63–67. Sketchy and sensationalized overview of Mailer’s personal and literary life; contains accounts of several meetings with Mailer during the period he lived in Connecticut, and a 1963 interview in which Mailer discusses his involvement with the Actors’ Studio in New York. A letter to Christian from Mailer’s Harvard professor, Theodore Morrison, is quoted.
