“Mailer Brings Lit Fest to Humorous Close.” Article by Felicia Matthew. The Daily Campus (Southern Methodist University), 20 November. Mailer read from The Gospel According to the Son (97.13), and also spoke of why he used the first person: “I knew that if I wrote this book in first person. I would not come out alive. When you are writing, you have to follow your instinct, and my instinct said to do it in the first person.”
