About this Item: Dell, New York, 1967. Mass Market Paperback. Condition: Good Plus to Very Good. First Edition Thus. Vintage Paperback: Dell 1058 -- Mailer is probably best known for his novels, from his best-selling 1948 war novel, "The Naked and the Dead," to his final work in 2007, "The Castle In The Forest," but, arguably, was at his best in his non-fiction and first-person reporting, such as "The Armies of the Night," "The Fight," and his essays, written originally for various national magazines and eventually brought together in four different collections. "Cannibals and Christians" is the third collection of these essays, pulling together work from the early to mid-1960s on politics, the Kennedys, Vietnam, sex, other authors, etc., and even including some poetry. First Printing, First Paperback Edition as stated. Originally issued in hardcover by The Dial Press. Mass Market Paperback, about 4 x 7 inches, 400 pages in white wrappers with blue and black lettering and red, yellow and green decorative elements on the front cover Four "blurbs" from reviewers and a small photo of the 1960s Mailer on the back. Text edges dyed green. Wrappers show a small, tape-repaired tear on lower edge of fold between front cover and spine, a pair of tiny tears on bottom edge of back cover and a touch of aging, o/w wrappers are clean and without significant flaw. Text is mildily age-tanned in the margins but fully legible. Complete, unmarked, no price stickers. A very decent copy of some of the work that made Mailer controversial. Seller Inventory # 005566

About this Item: München, Droemer Knaur Verlag, 1965. Condition: Gut. Deutsche Erstausgabe. 382 (2) Seiten. Einbandgtestaltung: Herbert Karl Traue. Sehr guter Zustand. - Norman Mailer führt in die faszinierende, von gespenstischen Visionen genährte Welt des modernen New York: Sex, Gewalttätigkeit, Mord, der Sieg des Bösen. Mailer karikiert diese Elemente seines Alptraumes in einer Übersteigerung, als seien sie schon Mythos der menschlichen Existenz. Stephen Rojack, Frontsoldat und Ex-Politiker, Psychiater und Fernsehstar, Erzähler der eigenen Tragödie, tötet seine Frau und vertuscht ihren Tod als Selbstmord. Wird man die Wahrheit herausfinden, oder wird Rojack davonkommen und seine Liebe der Barsängerin Cherry beweisen, der er in der Mordnacht begegnet. . - Norman Kingsley Mailer (* 31. Januar 1923 in Long Branch, New Jersey; 10. November 2007 in New York City) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. . Die produktivste Zeit: Politisch links orientiert entwickelte sich Norman Mailer zu einem scharfen Kritiker der US-amerikanischen Gesellschaft. Für seine Reportage über die amerikanische Protestbewegung gegen den Vietnamkrieg Heere aus der Nacht erhielt er 1969 den Pulitzer-Preis, ebenso 1980 für Gnadenlos (The Executioner's Song), einen Tatsachenroman über den Mörder Gary Gilmore und dessen Hinrichtung im Jahr 1977. In dem Dokumentarfilm When we were kings (Regie: Leon Gast; 1994 Oscar für den besten Dokumentarfilm) kommentierte er gemeinsam mit George Plimpton den historischen Boxkampf Rumble in the Jungle (dt.: Der Kampf im Dschungel"), zwischen dem damaligen Schwergewichts-Weltmeister George Foreman und dem Ex-Weltmeister Muhammad Ali, der am 30. Oktober 1974 in Kinshasa (Zaire, heute: Demokratische Republik Kongo) stattfand. Norman Mailer schrieb darüber das Buch The Fight. Norman Mailer veröffentlichte 1973 eine Biografie über Marilyn Monroe, die ursprünglich als Essay geplant war, sich aber zu einer Art Romanbiografie entwickelte, die allerdings keinem Anspruch auf Richtigkeit standzuhalten vermag. Dasselbe gilt für seinen 2007 erschienenen Roman über Adolf Hitler, in dem er letztlich nicht Hitler, sondern den 'Teufel' für Hitlers Taten verantwortlich erklärt. Außerdem verfasste er biografische Romane über Pablo Picasso und Lee Harvey Oswald. Mailer kandidierte erfolglos für das Amt des Bürgermeisters in New York und war in den 1980er-Jahren zeitweise Präsident der US-amerikanischen Sektion der Autorenvereinigung P.E.N.-Club. Seit 1968 trat Mailer auch als Filmregisseur in Erscheinung. Die letzten Jahre: 1999 verurteilte Mailer den Einsatz der NATO im Kosovokrieg.[4] Ende April 2005 übergab Mailer sein privates Archiv von über 10.000 Briefen, bisher unveröffentlichten Erzählungen sowie weiteren Aufzeichnungen und Manuskripten an die University of Texas und erhielt dafür 2,5 Millionen Dollar.[5] 2005 war Mailer Gaststar in der Serie Gilmore Girls, in der er als Autor im Dragonfly Inn, dem Hotel, das einer der Hauptfiguren, Lorelai Gilmore, gehört, interviewt wird. Sein Sohn Stephen Mailer spielte den Interviewer. Die Folge heißt Tanz der Hormone (Norman Mailer, I m pregnant). Mailer solidarisierte sich 2006 mit Günter Grass, als dieser vor allem von vielen Journalisten kritisiert wurde wegen seines späten Bekenntnisses zu seiner sechsmonatigen SS-Mitgliedschaft am Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges.[6] Mailer verteidigte Grass: Hätte ich in seinen Schuhen gesteckt, wäre ich wohl bei der SS gelandet." Das lange Schweigen von Grass verglich er mit seiner Messerattacke 1960 auf seine damalige Frau Adele, die Mailer eine Strafe von fünf Jahren Haft auf Bewährung einbrachte. Er wäre einfach überfordert, die Komplexität seiner Gedanken bei der Tat literarisch darzustellen, was er auch Grass zugute hielt.[7] Mailer heiratete insgesamt sechs Mal, hatte neun Kinder und lebte zuletzt mit dem ehemaligen Fotomodell Norris Church in Provincetown, Cape Cod. Norman Mailer verstarb am 10. November 2007 im Alter von 84 Jahren an Nierenversagen im Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

About this Item: Viking Penguin - Penguin Books USA Inc., New York, 1991. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition 1st Printing. BOOK: Previous Owner Markings; Corners, Spine, Boards Bumped; Light Shelf Rub to Boards; Edges Lightly Soiled. DUST JACKET: Repaired; Lightly Creased; Lightly Chipped; Moderate Fading Due to Sun Exposure; In Archival Quality Jacket Cover. SYNOPSIS: Here, powerfully portrayed in the words of novelists, poets, and journalists who lived through it - and in memoirs, diaries, and letters - is the full sweep of the Second World War, as it was experienced around the world by combatants and by civilians. From September 1, 1939 ("At dawn this morning," William L. Shirer, in Berlin, writes in his diary, "Hitler moved against Poland"), to the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor (in a scene from James Jones's From Here to Eternity); from the arrival of a sealed trainload of Jews at Auschwitz station (in Elie Wiesel's Night), to the ordeal of Leningrad, enduring the longest siege of a city in recorded history (in Harrison Salisbury's The 900 Days), to Dresden, just before its firebombing, perceived as Oz by an American prisoner of war (in Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.'s Slaughterhouse-Five), to the dropping of the first atomic bomb (an excerpt from John Hersey's Hiroshima) and V-J Day, the epic story unfolds. Scenes of stunning intensity - among them episodes from Norman Mailer's The Naked and the Dead (a confrontation on a Pacific island) and Joseph Heller's Catch-22 - penetrate to the heart of the individual experience of war. Primo Levi, Yukio Mishima, and Lothar-Gunther Buchheim (projecting the life of a German U-boat crew in his autobiographical novel, Das Boot), among others, allow us to perceive the Italian, Japanese, and German experience of the war as if it were our own. From W. H. Auden, Evelyn Waugh, George Kennan, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Jessica Mitford, to Gunter Grass, William Styron, Farley Mowat, Natalia Ginzburg, Thomas Bernhard, and Philip Roth - magnificent writers from many countries immerse us in the immeasurable range of circumstance, feeling, and experience that was World War II. From American soldiers on leave (cheeky G.I.s astonishing the shy British girls), to Kamikaze pilots writing home before their final missions; from A. J. Liebling on a landing craft approaching the French coast on D-Day, and Genet (Janet Flanner) celebrating the liberation of Paris, to William Manchester on MacArthur's acceptance of the Japanese surrender ("Tomioka was struck by the general's lack of vindictiveness"), Mordecai Richler has brought together a commemorative mosaic that, from first to last, engrosses, surprises, and moves us. Mordecai Richler is the author of nine novels and numerous articles and screenplays. Born and raised in Montreal, he was eight years old at the outbreak of World War II in 1939, yet he and his generation were deeply affected by the war as news of it permeated the life of the times and as older friends and relatives left home to fight overseas.

About this Item: New York City, NY: The Penguin Press, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 287 pages. Published in 2008. The authors' account on the Iraq War. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Philip Gourevitch's and Errol Morris' "Standard Operating Procedure". SOP. Gourevitch and Morris focus on the American soldiers who were sent to Iraq as liberators only to find themselves turned into jailers in Saddam Hussein's dungeons, responsible for implementing a practice they were sent to fight against. "The story of the defining moment in the war, the infamous Abu Ghraib photographs of prisoner abuse, as seen through the eyes, and told through the voices, of the soldiers who took them and appeared in them. In the tradition of powerful storytelling that runs from Joseph Conrad's 'The Heart of Darkness' and Fyodor Dostoevsky's 'The Grand Inquisitor' to Norman Mailer's 'The Executioner's Song', Philip Gourevitch has written a relentlessly surprising and perceptive account of the front lines of the War on Terror" (Publisher's blurb). Gourevitch relies heavily on Errol Morris' recorded interviews with the soldiers (hence the shared credit), that are also the basis of Morris' documentary, which is excruciating to watch. No theater in the United States has screened it, but it has been shown in Europe. Susan Sontag's last essay, "Regarding The Torture of Others" (2004), argued that Abu Graib will remain the most iconic image of the war in Iraq long after the war itself is finally over. Gourevitch and Morris evidently agree, but see the scandal from the most painful perspective of all: The soldier-photographer-torturers themselves. "There is no keeping our hands clean of Abu Graib. Ignoring it doesn't work, nor does denouncing it, and there is no disavowing it, never mind denying it. The stain is inescapable and irreversible and it is ours, and if we have any hope of containing it and living it down it can only come from seeing it whole" (Philip Gourevitch). An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Gourevitch and Errol Morris collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (in the month and year of publication) in black pen on the title page by the author: "Philip Gourevitch 5/08". This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and publication-month dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Two of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPY OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1594201323. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 13372

About this Item: Vivisphere Publishing, Poughkeepsie, NY, 1999. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Dust Jacket Condition: very good. Michael Gyory (Cover Photograph) (illustrator). Presumed First Edition/First Printing. [10], 411, [11] pages. Dated inscription on title page. Sex and death collide on a quiet street in Brooklyn, when two neighbors witness a murder. To combat the senselessness of what they have seen, the two begin an affair hoping together to reconstruct the order that existed before brutality shattered their quiet lives. But their privacy, fragile as life itself, is shattered as well, when an investigation of the killing turns their private lives very, very public. Medusa, a New York gossip columnist makes their situation grist for a cynical readership until the two now intimate neighbors decide to fight back. This wonderfully written, darkly comic novel exposes the whirlpool of desire that swirls around our deepest fears, and the lengths some will go to discover whether tainted motives, lost love, and death itself can be redeemed. Terry Quinn is a novelist, playwright, composer, and performance poet. His short stories and essays have appeared in numerous literary journals and national magazines. In addition to working extensively in the arts, Terry Quinn writes, consults and edits in the field of Social Policy Analysis and teaches Creative Writing at a private college in New York City.
