Untitled squib in People, 17 April, 34. Account of Mailer and Truman Capote at a Manhattan party celebrating a new novel by Dotson Rader, Miracle. Rader and a friend sang hymns between disco numbers. “Why not,” said Mailer. “After all, television mixes apples with astronauts.” Mailer also said he was writing a book about Gary Gilmore, the executed murderer. “It’s a new angle,” he said.
