“An Interview with Norman Mailer.” By John W. Aldridge. Partisan Review 47 (July), 174–182. Focuses on the narrative opportunities and challenges Mailer faced in writing The Executioner’s Song (79.14). Mailer again compares it with Capote’s In Cold Blood and notes that Gilmore was an appealing character “because he embodied many of the themes I’ve been living with all my life.” Rpt: 88.6. See 79.1, 80.1, 85.15.
