“Bad Manners and Bad Faith.” Article by Maria Margaronis and Elizabeth Pochoda. Nation, 1 February, 116–119. Angry piece on the PEN Congress in which Mailer is described as “unruly,” “overbearing,” “authoritarian,” displaying “a fat and fateful rudeness,” “foolish” and so on. The authors reprint the letter protesting Secretary of State Shultz’s appearance. Pochoda is one of the signers. See 85.1, 85.2, 85.6, 85.8, 85.9 and 1986 entries.
