Last week’s issue of New York featured a cover interview with Norman Mailer. Mailer was interviewed by Michael Lennon, the co-author of his new book, but Mailer managed to get a co-writer credit in the byline nonetheless if you’re Norman Mailer, you get (amply deserved) special treatment. The Naked and the Dead author’s new book, On God, was just released.
Except Norman Mailer is currently in intensive care at Mount Sinai hospital and recovering from major lung surgery. It’s quite an aftermath, all events considered, to have happened in the weeks following New York‘s original sitdown with Mailer.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mailer family at this time.
