She later claimed that Ward was a violent pedophile.
When he died in at the age of 84, Mailer towered above all other American writers of his and subsequent generations,according to his "New York Times" obituary. A primal life force whose writing elucidated the human condition among America and Americans better than any of his contemporaries for better than three decades, Mailer likely will rank with Herman Melville and Hemingway as among the greatest writers produced by the United States.
His family was Jewish. Mailer entered Harvard College in at the age of 16 to study engineering at a time when there was still a quota on Jews at the Ivy League universities, to keep them the province of the WASPs that still controlled the control up to and through World War II.
He saw the space project and the landing of a man on the moon as the apotheosis of WASP culture. He fell in love with literature at Harvard, and began his first attempts at creative writing.
Mailer took his degree inwas drafted into the Army the following year and served briefly with a rifle company in the Philippines.

Kennedy and the Supermarket the Los Angeles where the DNC was held, as well as the new post-War America at large" might very well be considered as the starting point of the New Journalism.
The article was published in the November issue of "Esquire Magazine. Rather than being hailed for revolutionizing American letters, Mailer was treated patronizingly by the Literary Establishment.
That many of these "true tales" are fiction is beside the point. Simply put, without Norman Mailer, there would not be American literature as we know it.
InMailer was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Limited Series or a Special for his work, three years after his "novel" Mailer had characterized his "The Armies of the Night" as "The novel as history, history as a novel" had won him his second Pulitzer Prize, for Fiction.
