“Norman Mailer: The Tough Guy is Really a Cuddly Jewish Teddy Bear.” Profile-interview by Pearl Sheffy Gefen. Lifestyles (International Edition), Vol. 92, 62–64. Mailer was interviewed by this Jewish cultural magazine during a visit to Montreal about his film version of Tough Guys Don’t Dance (84.17), and spoke of his film and his Jewishness: “Being Jewish is a whole inner way of life, and the Holocaust took away any possibility of telling myself I wasn’t Jewish.”
