About the Author

Norman Mailer's first novel, The Naked and the Dead, is widely regarded as one of the finest American novels of the twentieth century. Among Norman Mailer's other achievements are Why Are We in Vietnam?, The Armies of the Night, for which he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1968, and The Executioner's Song, which won the 1980 Pulitzer Prize.

Reviews

"The best novel to come out of the . . . war, perhaps the best book to come out of any war." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Best novel yet about World War II." --Time

"Brutal, agonizing, astonishingly thoughtful." --Newsweek

"Nightmarish masterpiece of realism." --Cleveland News

"Vibrant with life, abundant with real people, full of memorable scenes. To call it merely a great book about the war would be to minimize its total achievement." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"The most important American novel since Moby-Dick." --Providence Journal
