“Mailer the Author Will Donate Prize to Mailer the Politician.” Article-interview by Bernard Weinraub. New York Times, 6 May, 35. Comment on winning the Pulitzer Prize for The Armies of the Night (68.8) and his point of view in it: “Good journalism is acquainting the reader with your idiosyncrasies as a reporter. You’re the instrument through which they view the event so they ought to know what corrections to make for the inevitable large or small bias of your personality.” See 69.26, 74.20.
