“Mailer Meets the Press and Issues a Challenge.” Article by unidentified writer. New York Times, 19 July, 30. Brief report (one of four) on an 18 July press conference at which Mailer invited the press to investigate the possibility that Marilyn Monroe was murdered. He also noted that he would probably rewrite the final chapter of 73.30 for its softcover edition (75.3). The article is accompanied by another analyzing the charges of plagiarism against Mailer (later dropped): “The Mailer Case: Authors and Law” by Lesley Oelsner. See other 1973 entries, 74.12, 77.7.
