“Mailer Breaks Taboo.” Article-interview by Betsy Kline. Kansas City Star, 3 June, 9d. At a book publicity party in Washington D.C., Mailer described his forthcoming novel, Tough Guys Don’t Dance (84.17), as a “mystery inspired by [Dashiell] Hammett, [Raymond] Chandler and [Georges] Simenon . . . The emphasis is on characters at the expense of suspense and the plot.” Bracketed material is in original.
