“Ingenue.” Letter to the editor. Village Voice, 11 March, 4. Mailer criticizes Marta Curro’s 7 March Village Voice review of Millicent Brower’s novel, Ingenue. He says that “letting one writer-actress revise [sic] the work of another is like leaving hashish on an assassin.” Brower (originally Brauer) was a distant cousin of Mailer’s, and he knew her from childhood. Her husband, Harvey Anhalt, typed NAD (48.2); and she was the lead in Mailer’s 1947 experimental film, “Millie’s Dream.” See 13.2, 96.
