“Norman Mailer: Advertisements for himself (& Himself) 50 Years after ‘The Naked and the Dead.’” Interview by Bill Broadway. New Millennium Writings, spring-summer, 10–25. Conducted in 1997, this interview first appeared in a condensed form in the Washington Post; see 97.15a. One of the longest and best of his interviews on his religious beliefs, including comments on his 1962–1963 columns for Commentary (see 62.22, 63.1663.20); his Hebrew school experience; the story about God speaking to him in a Brooklyn coffee shop; his thoughts on Pope John XXIII; his mother’s fears of anti-Semitism, and his ideas on Jews and Jesus. Important interview.
