After Mailer

I first met Norman Mailer at a party in New York. It was the early ‘60s, I was a writer in my early twenties, Mailer was somewhere close to 40. He brought me over to the couch and we sat talking for three hours until he finally stood up and said, “I’m certainly not going to marry you.”
