“On Eddie’s First Collection of Stories.” Provincetown Arts 10 (July), 59. Mailer’s 1977 blurb for The Wine Cellar, a collection of stories by his late friend, Eddie Bonetti, is included in a memorial article. Mailer says that the collection “is a work about Italians living in America that begins where The Godfather ends,” and compares Bonetti’s prose with that of Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck.
