“Norman Mailer: Gary Gilmore and Cornish Game Hens Are on His Mind These Days.” Article-interview by James Brady. Miami News, 16 January, Sec. B, p. 1. At a small dinner with his wife, Norris, John W. Aldridge and John Simon, Mailer spoke of his experience as a cook in the army and compared The Executioner’s Song (79.14) to Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood: “Truman became emotionally involved. He took no notes. He claimed to have total recall. I took notes; I was not emotionally involved.” See 80.1, 80.10.
