About Norman Kingsley Mailer

Norman Kingsley Mailer (January 31, 1923 – November 10, 2007) was an American novelist, journalist, essayist, poet, playwright, screenwriter and film director.

Along with Truman Capote, Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, John McPhee, and Tom Wolfe, Mailer is considered an innovator of creative nonfiction, a genre sometimes called New Journalism, which superimposes the essay onto the nonfiction novel. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize twice and the National Book Award once. In 1955, Mailer, together with John Wilcock, Ed Fancher and Dan Wolf, first published The Village Voice, which began as an arts and politics oriented weekly newspaper distributed in Greenwich Village. In 2005, he won the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation.

Author. Considered one of America's outstanding writers of the 20th Century, his work often dealt with the social and political upheavals of his times. He won Pulitzer Prizes for "The Armies of the Night" (1969) and "The Executioner's Song" (1980). Born in Long Branch, New Jersey and raised in Brooklyn, New Yorl City, New York, after graduating from Harvard University with an engineering science degree, he pursued his goal of writing. His first novel, "The Naked and the Dead" (1948), was inspired by his experiences in the South Pacific while serving in the United States Army during World War II, and its success made him an international celebrity. In the course of his controversial career Mailer produced such books as "The Deer Park", "An American Dream", "Marilyn" and "Tough Guys Don't Dance". He also occasionally acted in and directed films. In 1969 he unsuccessfully ran for Mayor of New York City. (bio by: C.S.)
