“Fear Strikes Book World.” Article-interview by Washington Post syndicated writers. Chicago Sun-Times, 18 February, 1, 8. Criticized in this news article for not speaking out in response to the death threat aimed at Salman Rushdie by Ayatollah Khomeini, Mailer, via a spokeswoman (his assistant Judith McNally), said, “Any concerns you’ve heard about security—that’s absolutely untrue. He was holding off. He will be speaking next Wednesday [23 February] along with other authors.” See 89.25.
