Hugh Tremont Montague - code name HARLOT - is one of the grand old men of the CIA, a man obsessed and nearly - but not quite - the WASP patrician he seems to be. The narrator of Harlot's story is Harry Hubbard, whose famous father also belongs to the foudning generation of the CIA.

From the Inside Flap:

"The most daring, ambitious and by far the best written of the several very long, daring and ambitious books Norman Mailer has so far produced....Unlike just about every American writer since Henry James, Mailer has managed to grow and become richer in wisdom with each new book....There can no longer be any doubt that he possesses the largest mind and imagination at work in American literature today."
Narrated by Harry Hubbard, a second-generation CIA man, HARLOT'S GHOST looks into the depths of the American soul and the soul of Hugh Tremont Montague, code name Harlot, a CIA man obsessed. And Harry is about to discover how far the madness will go and what it means to the Agency and the country....
A Main Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club
