About the Author:

Norman Mailer is a major figure in postwar American literature. He is a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner. His most recent works include Ancient Evenings, The Executioner's Song, and, most recently, The Gospel According to the Son.

Review:

'Mailer recorded every foul thought and word of his characters, wrote about ignorant, savage, primitive men. For maturity of viewpoint, for technical competence, and for stark dramatic power, The Naked and the Dead is an incredibly finished performance.' New York Times
