“Mailer’s Side.” Letter to the editor. Arkansas Times, 7 July, 6. Mailer corrects comments by Crescent Dragonwagon, daughter of Maurice Zolotow, concerning “a host of accusations against my book, Marilyn[1], speaking of libel, invasion of privacy and plagiarism.” These accusations were later withdrawn by Zolotow after the publishers of Marilyn paid him $22,500 for permission to quote from his biography of Marilyn Monroe, instead of the “pittance” (according to Mailer) he had been previously paid. Mailer puts Dragonwagon on notice about “disseminating a canard against my literary reputation.”
