A message from Mike Lennon:
Norman Mailer: A Double Life, will be published by Simon and Schuster on October 15, 2013. To herald its arrival, and get out the word on readings and signings, and (eventually) the book’s reception, we have established a website. Jerry Lucas, my colleague on the Board of the Norman Mailer Society, is the webmaster, and has found artful ways to present the written, aural and visual material I’ve sent him. Please take a look at jmichaellennon.com. It is now up and running.
The site will be regularly updated, and you can sign in and comment, question or complain about the displayed materials. I will tweet, twitter, and occasionally squawk in reply as need be. Your feedback will be appreciated.
The biography will be 800+ pages in length (around 330,000 words), contain a bibliography, 43,000 words of notes, an index, and about 55 photos which will tell the story of Mailer’s life in another way. There are also links to various booksellers for ordering. It will sell for $37.50, but pre-ordered is $24.28, or $19.99 for an electronic version. You can also order it via the website.
Please pass on this message to anyone who you think might be interested. Thanks. And thanks to all of you, hundreds of friends, who have encouraged and enabled me to complete this project over the past seven years.
