Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The novelists interpretes and dramatizes the October 1967 anti-war demonstration in Washington and the issues and politics involved.


Review:

"I believe that ARMIES OF THE NIGHT is just as brilliant a personal testimony as Whitman's diary of the Civil War, SPECIMEN DAYS, and Whitman's great essay on the crisis of the Republic during the Gilded Age, DEMOCRATIC VISTAS. I believe that it is a work of personal and political reportage that brings to the inner and developing crisis of the United States at this moment admirable sensibilities, candid intelligence, the most moving concern for America itself. Mailer's intuition in this book is that the times demand a new form. He has found it."

Alfred Kazin, New York Times Book Review, 05/05/1968

Bookseller: The Book Depository US (Gloucester, ., United Kingdom)
Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. One of the first examples of new journalism daringly combines reportage with a novelistic style and garnered Mailer his first Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. Armies of the Night centers on the March on the Pentagon, the most famous anti-Vietnam War rally in Washington DC, and the characters that occupy this opposition--the intellectuals, students, African Americans, liberals, and marching women. Mailer, a novelist-as-character, sculpts this impressionably fragile world of the Left versus Authority and Peace versus War, prodding at the Vietnam generation s deepest anxieties. In the same way Truman Capote s In Cold Blood introduced the non-fiction novel, Armies of the Night renders this form, with turns historical and fictional. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780452272798
