“The Last Night.” Esquire, December, 151, 274-80. Story.

The concluding piece in Cannibals and Christians (66.11), Mailer’s nuclear fantasy was reworked into an unpublished screenplay by Mailer and his wife Norris Church. He once planned to call it “1999,” but decided against it feeling comparisons with Orwell’s 1984 would be invidious. Rpt: 67.11, 82.19, 84.35.
