Norman (Kingsley) Mailer (1923-2007) Innovator of the nonfiction novel, a towering figure in American literature for nearly 60 years. Norman Mailer developed in the 1960s and 1970s a form of journalism, that combined actual events, autobiography, and political commentary with the richness of the novel. ( See also Truman Capote and the classic "nonfiction novel" In Cold Blood Mailer's works always stirred controversy - because of both their stylish nonconformity and his controversial views of American life. The poet Robert Lowell praised him as "the best journalist in America", but what he thought of Mailer's fiction was left open. '"I decided the only explanation is that God and the Devil are very attentive to people at the summit. I don't know if they stir much in the average man's daily stew, no great sport for spooks, I would suppose, in a ranch house, but do you expect God or the Devil left Lenin and Hitler and Churchill alone? No. They bid for favors and exact revenge. That's why men with power sometimes act so silly."' (from An American Dream Norman Mailer was born in Long Branch, New Jersey, but he was raised in Brooklyn, New York. Every summer the family went back to Long Branch, where Mailer's grandparents had a small summer hotel. Mailer's father, Isaac Barnett Mailer, was an accountant and businessman. The dominant figure in the family was Mailer's mother, the former Fanny Schneider, worked in a small trucking company.

A Brief History of Norman Mailer
by J. Michael Lennon, Professor of English, Wilkes University
A mong our major living writers, Norman Mailer is perhaps the most well-known, both in the United States and internationally. No career in our literature has been at once so brilliant, varied, controversial, public, prolific and misunderstood. Few American writers have had their careers on the anvil of public inspection for such a lengthy period; none (excepting Edgar Allan Poe) has been so regularly and simultaneously celebrated and reviled.
Born in Long Branch, New Jersey in 1923, but raised in Brooklyn, Mailer graduated from Boys High School in 1939. He entered Harvard in the fall of that year as the German army marched into Poland. Mailer received his S.B. degree, with honors, in engineering in 1943, and was drafted in early 1944. He served as a rifleman in the South Pacific and wrote the huge best-seller, THE NAKED AND THE DEAD (1948) based on his experiences. Catapaulted into instant fame, he has been at the center of our national cultural consciousness ever since. Mailer is, among other things, an unfrocked prophet full of foreboding about contemporary life; he celebrates the intuitional and instinctive and castigates corporate greed, plastic and the rape of nature. His disagreements with feminists are, of course, legendary. But Mailer is also, in the words of Joan Didion, " a great and obsessed stylist, a writer to whom the shape of the sentence is the story."

Meetings, protests, marchesNorman mailer was everywhere. It was as though LBJ had conjured up the Vietnam War for Normanand God then sent him Nixon.
Norman Mailer: Autocrat of the Remainder Table There was a time in this country when bright young men did not dream of directing films or inventing software. They wanted to write: books, fictionwhat some liked to call "The Great American Novel." This generation included Gore Vidal whose grandfather had been an august senator and James Jones, a self-taught prodigy out of the Midwestbut none was brighternor more driventhan Norman Mailer. Born in 1923, the son of a South African Jew, and an adoring mother, Mailer was given the middle name Kingsley after malech, Hebrew for king. Later, his mother said, "I thought Norman was perfect"an opinion she held throughout life. (Peter Manso, Mailer: His Life and Times , New York, Penguin Books, 1985) But Mailer's father was a struggling accountant, and the young prince grew up working classin the grimy New York borough of Brooklyn. The streets of Crown Heights during the Depression provided some educationwith their hardness, neighborhood rivalries, and "fug you too" philosophy. No wonder in later years Norman would survive decades of literary wars and misalliances. But as the son of ambitious parents, Norman may have learned that survival skills are not an entree into the Establishmentfor that a degree was required and a classy one too. So, like many city boys, Norman burned up the public school competition and enrolled in Harvarddetermined, at 17, to become as he put ita "major writer." Norman found that Harvard was divided by more than just quadrangles. The school was run by scions of old families, prep school graduatesan elite, arrogant crowd that later crowned themselves, "The WASPS." In rare (or maybe not so rare) moments of self-pity, Mailer would tell intimates that at Harvard he lacked the right clothes, the right accent, the right religion.

    No one would say of Norman Mailer, who died on November 10th, at the age of eighty-four, that he hoarded his gift. He was a slugger. He swung at everything, and when he missed he missed by a mile and sometimes ended up on his tush, but when he connected he usually knocked it out of the park. He was immodest about his failures and modest about his successes, which is a healthy trait for a writer and probably a healthy trait for life. He left a huge footprint on American letters. Some readers found all these Normans obnoxious, a display of egotism. But Mailer was simply making apparent something that modern literature and, in particular, modern journalism preferred to disguise, which is that a book is written by a human being, someone with professional ambitions, financial needs, tastes and distastes, and this human being is part of the story whether he or she appears in the story or not. It was not important for readers to like this person; it was important to know him. Mailer did not put the first person into journalism; he took it out of the closet.
