NORMAN MAILER – THE NAKED AND THE DEAD ....WEDNESDAY JULY 18th
“The Naked and the Dead” by Norman Mailer
His first novel written in his early 20’s shot him to fame in the late 50’s. It was based on his World War 2 experiences in the Philippines; focussing on conflict between officers and regulars, each man's own internal conflicts and fears & questions the competence and motives of high-ranking officers. Exciting, funny, brutal & tragic…an ambitious book. 2 time Pulitzer Prize winner , radical journalist & activist , “ “tough guy” boxer , Mailer has inspired great admiration or annoyance but certainly cannot be ignored as one of the 20th centuries most penetrating & challenging thinkers.
EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED THE CURRENT BOOK PLEASE STILL FEEL FREE TO COME
