“Dysfunctionally Literate.” Column by Brad Wieners. Bay Guardian, December, 3. Encountering Mailer at a cocktail party on 6 November in San Francisco, Wieners tells him that he just read (in The F-Word by Jesse Sheidlower) that he had been forced to change “fuck” to “fug” in The Naked and the Dead (48.2). Mailer explains that he had used “fug” from the outset. See 49.3, 65.21, 68.31, 92.12. See 13.2, 793.
