Letter to the editor. Writer’s Digest, March, 10. Complaint about accuracy of Oriana Fallaci’s interview with Mailer in Writer’s Digest (68.21). Mailer says, “My words, my style, my very clumsiness of speech” were converted via translation from English to Italian back to English “into the spoiled and petulant tones of an Italian intellectual loved somewhat too much by his mother.”
