On 6 May, 50 years to the day after the publication of The Naked and the Dead (48.2), Mailer's anthology of his work, The Time of Our Time (98.7), is published and receives a warm reception.

The publication party, also a celebration of Mailer's recent 75th birthday, gathers a large crowd at the Rainbow Room of Rockefeller Center, including William Styron, George Plimpton, Kurt Vonnegut, Lillian Ross, all of his family, and a surprise guest, Muhammad Ali.
