THETATTOOBLOG.COM: Norman Mailer died today

Saturday, November 10, 2007

Norman Mailer died today

One of America's great writers -- and, occasionally, a great journalist -- died this morning in New York. Norman Mailer is too often ignored by younger readers and too little prized by older ones.
Just to stick to the journalism side of this heavyweight author, check out his fabulous Armies of the Night, Of a Fire on the Moon The Executioner's Song and Oswald's Tale: An American Mystery.
An inventor of the New Journalism, a founder of The Village Voice, a hipster novelist with a raging ego, Mailer lived a life just this side of Hunter Thompson, but left a body of work that far exceeds the gonzo great.
He'll be missed by anyone who cares about writing, journalism or America.
