Mr. Norman Mailer, the combative, controversial and often outspoken novelist died today in Manhattan.
He was 84.
This is definitely not a good year for American literature.  First Kurt Vonnegut and Art Buchwald, now Mr. Mailer…
I just got his lastest novel about Hitler "The castle in the forest", and now we will never know how its sequal would be.
Rest in Peace, Mr.Mailer.
I will miss your bold, poetic, and metaphysical style.
