At 77, Mailer gives up on the Sexual Revolution.” Article by Fiachra Gibbons. Guardian, 15 August. Report on Mailer’s appearance at the Edinburg Literary Festival. Mailer said, “Women have won everything. Men have sunk into their dugouts and pulled the metal covers over while women are rampaging over them.” He also spoke at some length about President Clinton, with whom he sympathized over the Monica Lewinsky affair: “Mon frere, I thought, I’d have done it myself.” But he also criticized Clinton for “the dreadful way he kissed up to the corporations and did away with poor people’s welfare, but not the corporations’ welfare.”
