Based on J. Michael Lennon and Donna Pedro Lennon’s updated and revised Norman Mailer: Works and Days, this project provides researchers with the definitive primary bibliography of Norman Mailer’s publications and an overview of important biographical events in Mailer’s life. This Digital Humanities project is edited by Gerald R. Lucas.

This site is a part of Project Mailer and is sponsored by the Norman Mailer Society. Have something to share? Contact the editor.

This project is currently under development, so anything can still change. “Works” (v1) was completed in October 2015. “Days” (v1) was completed in 2016. Work on the selected bibliography will run throughout 2017, leading to a second-edition of Norman Mailer: Works and Days coming in 2018. That said, many links may be broken to sources not yet entered. Any comments, questions, or suggestions may be submitted via our Contact page or tweeted to @drgrlucas (#MailerWorks).
