“Norman Mailer: 60 and Still Challenging for the Championship.” Article-interview by Robert Taylor. Boston Globe, 6 February, Sec. B, pp. 10–11. Another perspective on the discussion of Ancient Evenings (83.18) at the Lotos Club. Taylor is the only one of the editors present to quote Mailer’s comment on William Faulkner: “I’m as good a hardworking pro as anyone around. When I work I don’t like to know where I’m going. After I get there, out on the rockface, I look back at how far I’ve come—and then I look up and see Mt. Faulkner towering above me.” See 83.283.4, 83.7.
