“Norman Mailer’s Night Out.” Article-interview by David Leitch. The Sunday Times (London). 25 April, 1. A long piece in which Mailer recounts some of the challenges he faced in writing An American Dream (65.7). Mailer: “There were times in the first two or three installments when I felt scared I’d dry up—but then it was all right.” He also discusses President Kennedy, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Beckett, James T. Farrell, and his friend, boxer José Torres.
