“Writer as Something Else.” Article by Wilfred Sheed. New York Times Book Review, 4 March, 2. Six writers—Mailer, Philip Roth, Jean Stafford, John Updike, Kurt Vonnegut and Murray Kempton—respond to Sheed’s inquiry as to their profession had they not chosen writing. Mailer says he can’t think of what he might have been except “a lazy lover with women working for me.” Rpt: In Sheed’s The Good Word and Other Words. New York: E.P. Dutton, 1978.
