From Project Mailer

Adele,[1] as only I have seen her, has the weird potential of becoming a hipster-lady. It’s not likely but she could actually m.c. a radio program someday which would be Tallulah or Faye Emerson[2] hipsterized.



notes

  1. Adele Morales (1925-2015), who he married in April 1954, was Mailer’s second wife. The mother of his daughters Danielle (b.1957), and Elizabeth Anne (b. 1959), she separated from Mailer in early 1961 a few months after he stabbed her with a penknife, just missing her heart. He pled guilty to felonious assault and was given a suspended sentence. They divorced in 1962.
  2. A film actress who made the jump to live television, Emerson (1917-1983), hosted a number of talk shows in the 1950s.
