“Still Stormin’.” Article-interview by Alastair McKay. The Scotsman, S2 Weekend, 22 July, 2–5. Mailer speaks at length about the opportunities and pitfalls of celebrity: “It isn’t that agreeable having the fame, but it sure is disagreeable losing it.” He also speaks gloomily about the failure of some of his ideas: “The fact is that everything I’ve hated has triumphed and succeeded,” and mentions plastic, superhighways and modern architecture.
