“Mailer’s Latest Lines: The Well-known Author Makes His Debut as a Visual Artist in Provincetown.” Article-interview by Robert Taylor. Boston Globe (“Living/Arts”), 23 July, 39, 44. A second report on the exhibition of Mailer’s drawings in Provincetown. Mailer speaks about his artistic inclinations, but says more about his completed but unpublished biography of the young Picasso (95.38), then titled “Pablo and Fernande: A Portrait of Picasso as a Young Artist.” Doubleday was then expected to publish the book (Atlantic Monthly Press finally did), because Random House was the publisher of Picasso’s authorized biographer, John Richardson. See 93.3, 93.5, 94.8.
