“It was Quite a Shindig.” No author. Rolling Stone, 30 March. Brief account of a Mailer party at his Brooklyn Heights apartment, attended by José Torres, Woody Allen, Kurt Vonnegut, and Milton Greene. Music was provided by the punk band, Shrapnel. Mailer had a head-butting contest with one of the Band members, and wrestled with Shrapnel’s manager, Legs McNeil. When the band was leaving Mailer offered some bottles of scotch to them, and one band member replied, “Norman, we don’t know how to drink scotch yet.” Mailer gave him a bottle and said, “Well, you’ll learn, you’ll learn.”
