“Life with Mailer.” Biographical article by James Atlas. New York Times Magazine, 9 September, 52–55, 86, 88, 90, 92, 94, 96, 98, 102, 104, 107; cover photograph of Mailer. Longest biographical essay on Mailer since Brock Brower’s piece in Life (65.20). Like Brower, Atlas concentrates on whether Mailer will make good on his early promise to write the great American novel. Mailer’s family and friends are also quoted in this well-illustrated piece.
