“Pearl or Jew?” Letter to the editor. New York Review of Books, 28 April, 26–27. Response to Richard G. Stern’s description in the New York Review of Books, 17 February, titled “Report from the MLA.” Stern reports what Mailer said and did in an elevator in the Palmer House in Chicago in December 1965, and also gives an account of Mailer’s “corrosive, brilliant” MLA talk (66.5). Mailer cites 66.3 in his letter, which is followed by Stern’s friendly disagreement with Mailer’s version. Rpt: As “To the New York Review of Books” in 72.7, 82.19.
