“Uncle Norman Makes the Obscene.” Article-interview by Nancy Weber. Books, New York Post. (September), 8. Focuses mainly on forthcoming Why Are We in Vietnam? (67.15) with asides on the war in Vietnam, Ronald Reagan, An American Dream (65.7) and The Deer Park: A Play (67.13). Mailer says that Why Are We in Vietnam? “took five months, June to November 1966, with a month and a half out to do ‘The Deer Park’ in Provincetown.” He says, “It’s a book to be read out loud; it uses language more for its sound than for what it means.”
