“A Time of Compromise for Mailer.” Article-interview by Randy Sue Coburn. Washington Star, 18 October, C1. Long piece in which Mailer speaks at length about The Executioner’s Song (79.14) and his relationship to Lawrence Schiller: “The book wouldn’t have been as large if Schiller hadn’t engaged my competitive instinct. He was almost like a line coach. I found myself feeling, ‘I’ll be damned if that fat bastard will work harder than me.’ ”
