Mailer Gets Hammered.” Article by Gerald Howard. New York Times Book Review, 26 August 2007, 27. Account of Mailer being interviewed at the Walter Reade Theater of Lincoln Center by Michael Chaiken, Kent Jones and J. Michael Lennon prior to a showing of Maidstone (71.28) on 22 July. It was Mailer’s last public appearance. Howard focuses on his impressions of the film, but does quote Mailer’s characterization of the role of film director as being “equivalent to being a general in a war in which no blood was shed.”
