“An Excerpt [from Tough Guys Don’t Dance].” USA Today, 27 July, Sec. D, p. 3. Accompanying John D. MacDonald’s review is this brief excerpt from the last page of chapter 2 of 84.17, detailing Tim Madden’s discovery of a severed blonde head in his marijuana hiding place in the Truro woods. MacDonald calls the passage “a good example of Mailer guile and versatility—Tim Madden finding a head, done in the formal archaic structures of Poe.”
