From Project Mailer

Energy spent on solving one problem opens us to the easy solution of other problems. So the sticky heavy depressed love relation of Dan[1] and Rhoda[2] is very important, for if they can ever solve that they will able to slove (solve and slovenly) a hundred other things.


  1. A close friend of Mailer’s in the 1950s, Daniel Wolf (1915 – 1996), the co-founder of the Village Voice, introduced Mailer to his second wife, Adele Morales.
  2. Lifelong friend of Mailer’s sister Barbara, Rhoda Lazare (b. 1926) was introduced to her husband, Daniel Wolf, by Mailer.
