Описание: NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "THE GLOBE AND MAIL" Norman Mailer was one of the towering figures of twentieth-century American letters and an acknowledged master of the essay. "Mind of an Outlaw, " the first posthumous publication from this outsize literary icon, collects Mailer's most important and representative work in the form that many rank as his most electrifying. As America's foremost public intellectual, Norman Mailer was a ubiquitous presence in our national life--on the airwaves and in print--for more than sixty years. With his supple mind and pugnacious persona, he engaged society more than any other writer of his generation. The trademark Mailer swagger is much in evidence in these pages as he holds forth on culture, ideology, politics, sex, gender, and celebrity, among other topics. Here is Mailer on boxing, Mailer on Hemingway, Mailer on Marilyn Monroe, and, of course, Mailer on Mailer--the one subject that served as the beating heart of all of his nonfiction. From his early essay "A Credo for the Living," published in 1948, when the author was twenty-five, to his final writings in the year before his death, Mailer wrestled with the big themes of his times. He was one of the most astute cultural commentators of the postwar era, a swashbuckling intellectual provocateur who never pulled a punch and was rarely anything less than interesting. "Mind of an Outlaw" spans the full arc of Mailer's evolution as a writer, including such essential pieces as his acclaimed 1957 meditation on hipsters, "The White Negro"; multiple selections from his seminal collection "Advertisements for Myself;" and a never-before-published essay on Sigmund Freud. Incendiary, erudite, and unrepentantly outrageous, Norman Mailer was a dominating force on the battlefield of ideas. Featuring an incisive Introduction by Jonathan Lethem, "Mind of an Outlaw" forms a fascinating portrait of Mailer's intellectual development across the span of his career as well as the preoccupations of a nation in the last half of the American century. Praise for "Mind of an Outlaw" " " " Mailer's] best and brightest."--"Esquire" " " "The fifty essays collected in this retrospective volume span sixty-four years and show Norman] Mailer (1923-2007) at his brawny, pugnacious, and egotistical best. . . . This provocative collection brims with insights and reflections that show why Mailer is regarded as a great literary mind of his generation."--"Publishers Weekly" " " "The selections open a window onto the capacious mind and process of one of the most volatile intellects of the twentieth century."--"Library Journal" " " "Vintage Mailer: brilliant, infuriating, witty and never, ever boring.""--Tampa Bay Times" "As good an introduction to Mailer's habits of mind as there's ever been."--"Kirkus Reviews" " " "There's no arguing about Mailer the essayist--he was outstanding. . . . These insightful essays educate, argue and persuade on everything from politics and literature to film, philosophy and the human condition."--"Shelf Awareness"

Описание: Beginning with his debut masterpiece, The Naked and the Dead, Norman Mailer has repeatedly told the truth about war. Why Are We at War? returns Mailer to the gravity of the battlefield and the grand hubris of the politicians who send soldiers there to die. First published in the early days of the Iraq War, Why Are We at War? is an explosive argument about the American quest for empire that still carries weight today. Scrutinizing the Bush administration's words and actions, Mailer unleashes his trademark moral rigor: "Because democracy is noble, it is always endangered. . . . To assume blithely that we can export democracy into any country we choose can serve paradoxically to encourage more fascism at home and abroad." Praise for Why Are We at War? "We're overloaded with information these days, some of it possibly true. Mailer offers a provocative--and persuasive--cultural and intellectual frame."--Newsweek " Mailer] still has the stamina to churn out hard-hitting criticism."--Los Angeles Times "Penetrating . . . There's plenty of irreverent wit and fresh thinking on display."--San Francisco Chronicle "Eloquent . . . thoughtful . . . Why Are We at War? pulls no punches."--Fort Worth Star-TelegramPraise for Norman Mailer " Norman Mailer] loomed over American letters longer and larger than any other writer of his generation."--The New York Times "A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent."--The New Yorker "Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure."--The Washington Post "A devastatingly alive and original creative mind."--Life "Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance."--The New York Review of Books "The largest mind and imagination in modern] American literature . . . Unlike just about every American writer since Henry James, Mailer has managed to grow and become richer in wisdom with each new book."--Chicago Tribune "Mailer is a master of his craft. His language carries you through the story like a leaf on a stream."--The Cincinnati Post

Описание: In this wild battering ram of a novel, which was originally published to vast controversy in 1965, Norman Mailer creates a character who might be a fictional precursor of the philosopher-killer he would later profile in The Executioner's Song. As Stephen Rojack, a decorated war hero and former congressman who murders his wife in a fashionable New York City high-rise, runs amok through the city in which he was once a privileged citizen, Mailer peels away the layers of our social norms to reveal a world of pure appetite and relentless cruelty. One part Nietzsche, one part de Sade, and one part Charlie Parker, An American Dream grabs the reader by the throat and refuses to let go. Praise for An American Dream "Perhaps the only serious New York novel since The Great Gatsby."--Joan Didion, National Review "A devil's encyclopedia of our secret visions and desires . . . the expression of a devastatingly alive and original creative mind."--Life "A work of fierce concentration . . . perfectly, and often brilliantly, realistic with] a pattern of remarkable imaginative coherence and intensity."--Harper's "At once violent, educated, and cool . . . This is our history as Hawthorne might have written it."--Commentary Praise for Norman Mailer " Norman Mailer] loomed over American letters longer and larger than any other writer of his generation."--The New York Times "A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent."--The New Yorker "Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure."--The Washington Post "A devastatingly alive and original creative mind."--Life "Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance."--The New York Review of Books "The largest mind and imagination in modern] American literature . . .
