Letter to John Hohenberg (28 December 1972). In The Pulitzer Prizes: A History of the Awards in Books, Drama, Music, and Journalism, Based on the Private Files over Six Decades, by John Hohenberg, 202, 339. New York: Columbia University Press. Mailer comments on why The Naked and the Dead (48.2) did not receive the Pulitzer Prize: “I had come out all ten thumbs and ten big toes for Henry Wallace, and for all I know may have been considered a fellow-traveler or a Communist dupe.” Mailer also comments on the effect the Pulitzer he received for The Armies of the Night (68.8) had on his campaign for mayor of New York.
