“At Last, a Norman Conquest.” Article-interview by Alan W. Petrucelli. Cape Cod Times, 20 November, Sec. C, pp. 1–2. Mailer again speaks of the painters he knew in Provincetown—Franz Kline, Hans Hoffman, Robert Motherwell and Helen Frankenthaler—and his love of the town in this interview centered on 95.38. “Provincetown,” he says, “may be a joke to the rest of the Cape, but it’s perhaps the most generous small town in America, full of wonderfully goofy aspects and sweet freedom.” Mailer also notes that 95.38 was completed in 1992, but it took three years to obtain the needed permissions.
