In this program Pulitzer Prize-winner Norman Mailer talks about his life and the experiences that led to the writing of some of his greatest works. His military service during World War II, a New York City mayoral bid, his drug use, his six marriages, and his opinion of Ernest Hemingway are all topics of discussion. Mailer describes the identity crisis he suffered after the huge success of The Naked and the Dead and how that eventually inspired him to create biographies of Marilyn Monroe, Mohammad Ali, and others. This personal look at Mailer lends insight into the man whose take on the 20th century was the foundation for a new genre of writing-today's creative nonfiction.
