Описание: Patriotism in a country thats failing has a logical tendency to turn fascistic, writes Norman Mailer in WHY ARE WE AT WAR? And, yes, you guessed it: he says the USA is failing. He points to the unemployment rate, the fact that one percent of the population runs this country, that we do not get to vote on most things that affect our lives (e.g., how high buildings can be, whether tax money pays for interest groups, etc.), and then reflects on the identity crisis the United States of America experienced after 9/11. If we are such a great country, we wondered, why do so many hate us? We went into a tailspin and have decided that it is our job to instill democracy in other countries. The great irony, Mailer says, is that though democracy is the most beautiful concept in the history of civilization it is also the most fragile. It cannot be instilled by the US in other countries but most grow from years, even centuries, of struggle within the individual countries. Mailer writes that the American attempt to export democracy to other countries will, paradoxically, do more to encourage and promote fascism at home and abroad. But Mailer does not allow for any such benevolent musings. We are not in Iraq to establish democracy, he writes. We are there to get a foothold on the Middle East, and then to pursue domination of the entire world. The plan for the US domination of the world was set in place back in the early 1990s. Mailer reasons that if not for Clinton the US would be running the world by now, which accounts for the intense hatred so many conservatives had for him. WHY ARE WE AT WAR? is both enlightening and frightening.

Описание: This is a reissue of a modern classic. This book catapulted Norman Mailer to fame on its first publication in 1948. 'The best war novel to come out of the United States.' - "The Times". This is Norman Mailer's first novel. It is the book that catapulted him to instant fame. A modern classic, on every American Literature student's reading list. Based on Mailer's own experience of military service in the Philippines during World War Two, "The Naked and the Dead" is a graphically truthful and shattering portrayal of ordinary men in battle. First published in 1949, as America was still basking in the glories of the Allied victory, it altered forever the popular perception of warfare.

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.

Описание: Norman Mailer fused fact and fiction to create indelible portraits of such figures as Marilyn Monroe, Gary Gilmore, and Lee Harvey Oswald. In The Gospel According to the Son, Mailer reimagines, as no other modern author has, the key character of Western history. Here is Jesus Christ's story in his own words: the discovery of his divinity and the painful, powerful journey to accepting and expressing it, "as if I were a man enclosing another man within." In its brevity and piercing simplicity, it may be Mailer's most accessible, direct, and heartfelt work.

"Challenges readers on the religious right and the atheist left with equally rich interpretive tasks."--The Dallas Morning News

"An informed and believable work of fiction . . . of what may have been going through the mind of Jesus during his epic ministry."--San Francisco Chronicle

Описание: "Writing is spooky," according to Norman Mailer. "There is no routine of an office to keep you going, only the blank page each morning, and you never know where your words are coming from, those divine words." In The Spooky Art, Mailer discusses with signature candor the rewards and trials of the writing life, and recommends the tools to navigate it. Addressing the reader in a conversational tone, he draws on the best of more than fifty years of his own criticism, advice, and detailed observations about the writer's craft.

Praise for The Spooky Art

"At his best--as artists should be judged--Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure. There is enough of his best in this book for it to be welcomed with gratitude."--The Washington Post

" The Spooky Art] should nourish and inform--as well as entertain--almost any serious reader of the novel."--Baltimore Sun

"The richest book ever written about the writer's subconscious."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Striking . . . entrancingly frank."--Entertainment Weekly

Описание: A key backlist title from the highly acclaimed author of "The Naked and the Dead and The Fight". War her ex-Congressman, a professor of 'popular but somewhat notorious reputation', television personality and husband of the rich and beautiful Deborah ('a girl who would have been bored by a diamond as big as the Ritz'), Stephen Rojack lived the "American Dream". But his enviable life concealed a strange tension, the constant 'itch to jump', and when one day he finally cracks and strangles his luscious wife, he unleashes a personality of undreamt-of ferocity. A wanted murderer, Rojack is suddenly catapulted into an alien world of gangsters, crumbling tenements and downtown bars. Here, he meets Cherry, a small-time singer who ekes out her living in sleazy nightclubs, waiting for a break. She's the woman Rojack falls for, dangerously, desperately, tragically! A powerful exploration of one man's quest for depravity, "An American Dream" shocked the USA on first publication in 1965 with its graphic depictions of sex and violence. One of the key works of twentieth-century American literature, the novel's white-hot prose makes it, for many, Mailer's finest achievement.
