Letter to the editor. New York Times Book Review, 6 January, 27. Complaint about being quoted out of context in James Atlas’s 2 December article, “The Case for Thomas Wolfe.” Mailer adds that “Wolfe is a hero of mine,” and that he is unhappy about being counted as one of his detractors. Atlas responds on the same page by saying that Mailer is angry at not being quoted at greater length in his article.
