“Taking the Measure of Mailer.” Article-interview by Wayne Warga. Los Angeles Times, 25 October, Sec. 4, pp. 30, 33. On the book tour for 79.14, Mailer tells Warga, “I realized that it was what I’d been looking to do ever since I wrote The Naked and the Dead.[1] I wanted to do an immense panoramic novel with a strong narrative thread to it, a sort of collective novel of America.”
