“TV Review: Mailer and Laing Seen in Channel 13 Talk.” Article by John J. O’Conner. New York Times, 10 November, 72. Review of a program hosted by Patrick Watson, on which Mailer and R.D. Laing discussed schizophrenia and other matters. O’Conner found the show to be a “disaster,” but the Mailer quotes he gives suggest otherwise. Mailer says that if he could be born again, he would choose to spend nine months in the womb of “a black woman of marvelous grace and strength.”
