Preface to Writers: Photographs, by Sally Soames, 9. San Francisco: Chronicle Books; London: Deutsch. Mailer praises Soames, who uses only available light, in his 454-word preface to this collection of photographs of 83 writers, accompanied by a quote from the work of each. Mailer’s quote is the opening paragraph of Advertisements for Myself (59.13). See Soames’s comments on the writers she photographed, including Mailer, in Lesley White’s article, “Open Books,” (London) Sunday Times Magazine, 7 May.
