Mailer Makes Another Esquire List

Norman Mailer’s 1960 nonfiction narrative “Superman Comes to the Supermarket” made the “The 7 Greatest Stories in the History of Esquire Magazine” list. From the introduction:

Five years ago, we named “Frank Sinatra Has a Cold,” by Gay Talese, the greatest story Esquire ever published. Here, as we close out our 75th anniversary celebration, are the top seven, with several republished online in their entirety for the first time ever.

As the snippet says: Mailer’s narrative is available in its entirety. According to Esquire, “Superman” is “Mailer’s debut into the world of political journalism, a sprawling classic examining John F. Kennedy.”
