“Manso’s Many Untruths.” Letter to the Editor. Provincetown Banner, 16 May, 8. Mailer comments on Sue Harrison’s review of Peter Manso’s portrait of Provincetown in his book, Ptown: Art, Sex and Money on the Outer Cape (New York: Scribner’s, 2003): “I will now state that every remark or action he has attributed to me that I have read about . . . is wholly and totally untrue.” Mailer goes on to say that his “private term” for Manso, who compiled an oral biography of Mailer, Mailer: His Life and Times (85.13), “might be ‘poison-drip.’” See 00.1. Rpt: Playboy, January 2009.
