The New York Observer reports today that Simon & Schuster will be publishing the biography of Norman Mailer currently being penned by Mailer’s friend, long-time associate, and Society president J. Michael Lennon. Mike Lennon has been working on this biography for some time; he states:
I have been collecting material for this biography almost from the beginning of our relationship. Beginning in 2003, Norman did a series of in-depth interviews with me on his life and work with the clear sense that the historical record had to be preserved. These interviews, along with others with his widow Norris and other family and friends will be essential to my effort.
