Author Bio

Norman Mailer

Norman Kingsley Mailer (born January 31, 1923 in Long Branch, New Jersey) was an American author, screenwriter, essayist, and poet. Mailer, along with Truman Capote and others, is known for his “innovation of narrative nonfiction”, the process of superimposing an essay on a nonfiction novel. In 1948, he published The Naked and the Dead, as a reflection on his military service in WWII. This novel became a New York Times bestseller for 62 weeks and was acclaimed “one of the one hundred best novels in English language” by the Modern Library. Norman Mailer died on November 10, 2007 in New York City.
