Reviews
"Mailer is missed. . . . His gifts of observation and imagination [are] splendid armor for our own time." --David Denby, Harper's Magazine

"The fearlessly original Mailer is . . . more vital than ever. . . . If you really want to know What Happened, this collection of 50-year-old works has more to say than anything published in the past 12 months." -Ash Carter, Esquire

"Mailer's catalogue of the schizophrenic hypocrisies in American life--our warring internal dualisms--that brought us to such a pass seem still entrenched in our political psyche. One can't help thinking that dissenting young people today, who might come upon this book as a historical curiosity or reading assignment, will be surprised to find a startlingly familiar nation at war with itself." --Robert J. Begiebing, The Mailer Review

"His biographer J. Michael Lennon and the LOA selected the contents brilliantly."
-- Buffalo News

"Norman Mailer is best binge-read as an orgy of big ideas, long, loping sentences and assertions that only a writer of titanic ego could make. Get ready to dive in...[this] two-volume anthology should keep you busy for days."
-- Dallas News
