“Dance of a Tough Guy.” Article-interview by Michael Ventura. L.A. Weekly, 18–24 September, 14–21; cover photograph of Mailer. Ventura combines a fine interview in California with his remembrance of Mailer lecturing at University of California, Berkeley in 1972, some well-chosen quotes from Mailer’s books, and his final reflections on how Mailer “is going down slow, like the old blues [song] says, but he is going down smart.” Mailer’s elaboration of the distinction between “soul” and “psyche” is only one of several thoughtful exchanges with Ventura. Rpt: 88.6. See 84.17, 1986 and 1987 entries.
