“Soft Spots in a Tough Guise.” Article-interview by Peter Stothard. Times Saturday (London), 12 October, 16–17; cover photographs of Mailer by Graham Wood. In preparation for the British publication of 91.26, Mailer talks (in New York) about the novel, the CIA, capitalism, Fidel Castro, alcohol and drugs and the U.S.: “Are we a good country or a bad one? I mean, are we a good country with all sorts of hideous things wrong with us, or are we essentially a bad country with lots of superficially positive aspects?”
