Opis produktu

Norman Mailer (19232007) was one of the great postWar American writers both as a novelist and as one of the key inventors of the New Journalism. His books include the novels The Naked and the Dead The Deer Park Why Are We in Vietnam? The Executioners Song and Harlots Ghost and the nonfiction works The Armies of the Night A Fire on the Moon (published in the USA as Of a Fire on the Moon) and The Fight. He won the National Book Award and twice won the Pulitzer Prize.Mailers superb account written as it was happening of the first attempt to land men on the moonHouston Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.A Fire on the Moon tells the scarcely credible story of the Apollo 11 mission. It is suffused with Mailers obsession both with the astronauts themselves and with his own anxieties and terrors about the extremity of what they were trying to achieve. Mailer is both admiring and appalled and the result is a book which is both a gripping narrative and a brilliant depiction of the nowforgotten technical issues and uncertainties around the mission. A Fire on the Moon is also a matchless portrait of an America caught in a morass of introspection and misery torn apart by the war in Vietnam. But for one extraordinary week in the summer of 1969 all eyes were on the fates of three men in a rocket travelling a quarter of a million miles away from Earth.With an introduction by Geoff Dyer.
