“Behind the Image.” Article-interview by Albert Watson. The Newcastle Journal, 20 October, 10. Mailer discusses 84.17, and also talks about his self-image in the 1940s: “As a young man I was very shy, thought I can’t pretend I haven’t changed since then. It was like being a bird in the jungle, living the life of a bird, and suddenly being treated like a lion. You have to stalk though that jungle like a lion, knowing all the time that you’re really a bird.”
