Dear Sandy,[1]

Just a line to tell you that we may be in Provincetown Christmas week, for we own a home here now, but if we’re in New York, we’ll look forward to seeing you. You write, “We have as not yet seen An American Dream and find it difficult to imagine it confined to the screen.” Yes indeed, Sir, when you see it, you may find it difficult to imagine.

  1. Sanford Sternlicht, an English professor at New York State University College at Oswego, wanted Mailer’s opinion of the film version.
