“Norman Mailer: A Man, an Artist, a Cultural Phenomenon.” Article-interview by Rick Soll. Living, Chicago Sun-Times, 7 August, 1, 6-7, 12; cover photograph of Mailer and Norris Church Mailer. In Chicago to promote Ancient Evenings (83.18), Mailer talks at length about the struggle to write the novel, and his image problems: “I never say exactly what I think—it’s my style to circle around an issue,” which causes problems for journalists, who “edit out the context.” He also reveals that he and his wife, Norris Church, “were born within one minute of each other, 26 years apart.” “Norris,” he says, “has changed me enormously.”
