“Advertisement for Himself.” Snippet by Jennifer Greenstein. Brill’s Content, April, 40. Mailer provided a blurb for a book, Passionate Sex: Discover the Special Power in You, by Leslie Aldridge Westoff, ex-wife of Mailer’s friend John W. Aldridge. Mailer says in his blurb that he has not read her book, but “if the author delivers one-tenth of what is promised in the title, the book will be the bargain of the year.” Mailer accompanied the blurb with a note to Westoff stating that her publisher can print it or reject it but “no negotiations, please.”
