“Norman Mailer Replies.” Letter to the editor. New York Review of Books, 13 July, 61. Mailer replies to the letter (in the same issue) of J. Herbie DiFonzo concerning Mailer’s explanations in 95.15 of Jack Ruby’s movements just before he killed Lee Harvey Oswald. Mailer points out that while Ruby’s movements “are epistemologically dysfunctional,” the key fact “is that Ruby was not only an amateur hit man but was scared stiff of the task before him.”
