Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
"[A] stupendous success."
John Cheever, Chicago Tribune BooksReview:
"I think no one but Mailer could have dared this book. The authentic Western voice, the voice heard in THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG, is one heard often in life but only rarely in literature, the reason being that to truly know the West is to lack all will to write it down. The very subject of THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG is that vast emptiness at the center of Western experience, a nihilism antithetical not only to literature but to most other forms of human endeavor, a dread so close to zero that human voices fade out, trail off, like skywriting....This is an absolutely astonishing book."
Joan Didion, New York Times Book Review, 10/07/1979
