NM & John Buffalo Converse & Book Miscellany

The New York magazine published a conversation “between a man of legendary fury and his son preparing to go to the barricades about the uses and abuses of Bush hatred.” Norman Mailer and John Buffalo converse in “Father to Son: What I’ve Learned About Rage.”
Finally, three recent books have material on Mailer: Mickey Knox’s The Good, the Bad and the Dolce Vita: Memoirs of an Itinerant Actor in Paris, Rome and Hollywood (Nation Books, 2004); American Rebels, edited by Jack Newfield, has as its lead chapter Pete Hamill’s essay on Mailer (Nation Books, 2004); Rachel Cohen’s book, A Chance Meeting (Random House, 2004) has chapters on Mailer and Marianne Moore, James Baldwin and Robert Lowell.
