“Edge Profile: Norman Mailer.” Profile-interview by J. Rentily. Razor magazine, June, 54–55. Mailer speaks of his desire to continue writing: “There are so many books to write. So many books to write. I know my body is old. But my brain is not too old, maybe 50.” As for his legacy: “I’ll last or I won’t last. It’s the one thing you can’t really predict, because history takes turns. There are certain writers who are so great you can never throw them off. I’m not in that category. I may last or I may not last.”
