“Norman Mailer’s Side on ‘Harper’s.’” Letter to the editor. Saturday Review, 12 June, 56. Mailer corrects a number of errors in Stuart W. Little’s 10 April Saturday Review article about the resignation of Harper’s editor Willie Morris following the publication of “The Prisoner of Sex” (71.10). One of the errors concerns the amount that Life paid Mailer for Of a Fire on the Moon (71.1). He received $450,000 from all sources for the book: for hardcover, softcover, serial and foreign rights. Rpt: As “To the Saturday Review” in 72.7, 82.19. An incorrect publication date in Harper’s of 20 April is given in both of these reprintings.
