Why Norman Mailer Won’t Dance.” Article-interview by Brandon Judell. Advocate, 27 October, 54–55. The writer for this LGBT magazine asks why so many of the characters in his novel and film, Tough Guys Don’t Dance seem to be antigay. Mailer says: “I hate the kind of general liberality that we have now in films where you can’t say anything bad about any nationality, any group.” He added that “none of my characters ever represent my point of view by themselves.” See 84.17, 1986 and 1987 entries.
