“Macho Mailer Faces Up to Posterity’s View.” Article-interview by Adrianne Blue. (London) Times, 10 June, 12. Brief piece, published during Mailer’s promotional tour in England for Ancient Evenings (83.18), with Mailer’s comments on his public persona. Mailer says, “More and more I find myself attuned to writers like Dostoyevsky, Stendhal, D.H. Lawrence—and I’m not comparing myself to them—who want to break up the ball game, explore new territory.”
