I'm delighted to announce that my essay, "In Search of the Jewish Norman Mailer" is in the new issue of The Mailer Review. The piece is not accessible online yet, though it's listed in the table of contents. You can always order a print copy if you're interested. In the meantime, here's the abstract for the essay that appears in the issue:
"The recently published 'Selected Letters of Norman Mailer' traces the trajectory of a lifelong engagement with Mailer's Jewish identity, reminding us that Mailer indeed discussed Jewish issues in his novels, nonfiction, and many interviews. The letters offer us a fresh opportunity to look back upon some of that work and see the Jewish (and non-Jewish Mailer) that emerges. This essay examines important Jewish connections in Mailer's works."
For those of you who read my piece, enjoy.
