“Creators on Creating: Norman Mailer.” Interview by Hilary Mills. Saturday Review, January, 46–49, 52–53. Major interview focusing on Mailer’s development as a writer by the author of Mailer: A Biography (82.23). A good deal of the interview is devoted to Mailer’s shifts between the novel and journalism: “But I think if I started any aspect of that New Journalism—and I did—it was an enormously personalized journalism where the character of the narrator was one of the elements not only in telling the story but in the way the reader would assess the experience.” Rpt: Partial in both 82.16 (as “The Mad Butler”) and 82.23. See 73.44.
