“My Mailer Problem.” Article by Germaine Greer. Esquire, September, 90-93, 214, 216. Still another account of “A Dialogue on Women’s Liberation” from the perspective of one of the participants. Many quotes from Mailer and a good deal of context from Greer. Mailer is parodied on the cover as King Kong holding Greer as Fay Wray in his hands, and inside as a vampirish boxer. Esquire later apologized for its treatment of Mailer. See 71.1671.20, 71.23, 77.14 and Covering the Sixties: George Lois, The Esquire Era, by George Lois. New York: Monacelli Press, 1996. Lois created the cover and reports the responses of Mailer and Esquire editor, Harold Hayes. Rpt: In Norman Mailer: Modern Critical Views, edited by Harold Bloom. New York: Chelsea House, 1986; and in Greer’s collection, The Madwoman’s Underclothes: Essays and Occasional Writings. New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, September 1987.
