“The White Negro (Superficial Reflections on the Hipster).” Dissent 4 (summer), 276-93. Essay.

Mailer’s most celebrated and castigated essay is also one of the most anthologized since World War II. It is usually reprinted with “Reflections on Hipsterism” (58.1), a follow-up discussion of the original essay.
