[Tribute to Vance Bourjaily]. New Delta Review, spring/summer. Responding to a request from the editors of the Review, Andrew Spear and Christopher Joyal, for a tribute to Bourjaily who was retiring from teaching at Louisiana State University, the school’s literary magazine, Mailer wrote an 800-word piece that recalls his first meeting with James Jones in New York in 1952, arranged by Bourjaily, and how the three young novelists “laughed and roared and drank and felt for a godly half-hour like the swashbucklers who were not, not quite.” Rpt: James Jones Literary Society Newsletter 10 (fall 2001) 01.6.
