Norman Mailer

By Remy Benoit

Ever the very talented, outspoken, and controversial writer, Norman Mailer passed on this month.

This piece of his was first published in 2003 in The New York Review of Books.

While I heartily disagree with his main premise, as well as a number of other things, this essay should spark you to reactions - and maybe, some writing of your own in response.

At Common Dreams The White Man Unburdened.

The Naked and the Dead.

The Armies of the Night: History as a Novel, the Novel as History.

Why Are We In Vietnam?.

The Castle in the Forest.

With this week the beginning of holiday thinking about gift giving, may I suggest a copy of my Loving available here for those on your list who wonder about the power of unconditional love to heal - even the wounds of war. My additional titles, Letty, Island Quilts, and Peace, Now are available by clicking on the link to your left. Do read the excerpts, and find the power of love to heal.
