“Mailer’s America.” Interview by J. Michael Lennon. Chicago Tribune, 29 September, Sec. 13 (“Arts”), pp. 18–19, 27. Fact and fiction in 91.26 is the heart of this interview, conducted in Provincetown, in mid-July, with additional comment on epistolary and epistemological aspects of the novel: “[Henry] James frightened me forever with his dictum that one must never put information into a novel unless it is digested through the lens of a protagonist’s perceptions.”
