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.

Mailers intuition in this book is that the times demand a new form. He has found it
