Mailer Passes at 84

With great sorrow, the family of Norman Mailer announces his passing on November 10, at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. The cause was acute renal failure. He was eighty four.
Mailer resided in Provincetown, Massachusetts, with his wife of 33 years, Norris Church Mailer, and maintained an apartment in Brooklyn, New York.
He was the author of more than 30 books, the director of four films, and a co-founder of the Village Voice. He ran for mayor of New York in the 1969 Democratic primary, and was a member of the American Institute of Arts and Letters. He won many literary awards, including two Pulitzers and the National Book Award. His latest book, On God: an Uncommon Conversation, was published on October 16th.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by nine children, Susan, Danielle, Elizabeth, Kate, Michael, Stephen, Maggie, Matthew and John Buffalo; ten grandchildren; a sister, Barbara Wasserman, and a nephew Peter Alson.
Arrangements for a private service and internment for family and close friends will be announced next week, and there will be a memorial service in New York in the coming months. For additional information please call (661) 487-0613.
