“Norman Mailer, Company Man.” Article-interview by Charles Trueheart. Washington Post, 23 September, Sec. C, pp. 1, 4. Focused interview on 91.26 in which Mailer explains that, initially, “I was going to write about [James Jesus] Angleton,” and he planned a “huge feud” between him and Hugh “Harlot” Montague, but he decided against it because to use a real person, you must “know him so well that you won’t misrepresent him.” Also revealed is the price of the novel: $30, a new high for hardcover fiction.
