“Mailer: ‘It’s Easier to Talk of Sex than Death.’” Article-interview by Eugene Kennedy. Chicago Tribune Bookworld, 10 April, Sec. 7, pp. 1, 7. Mailer is at ease with Kennedy, an old friend, and speaks reflectively about 83.18. “It may be,” he concludes, “that this book will be approachable to the degree that Americans are ready to contemplate and live with people profoundly oriented toward death.”
