Published by: University of Minnesota Press. When Norman Mailer’sThe Naked and the Deadwas published in 1948 it was all but universally acclaimed as a major novel marking the appearance of a new American writer destined for greatness. During the next twenty years, however, though he had some warm defenders, the negative judgments among critics substantially outnumbered the positive as book after book appeared: novels, a play, collections of stories and poems, and gatherings of essays and other fugitive pieces.

This pamphlet series has been hailed by critics, teachers, and librarians as an ideals means of introducing both students and general readers to American writers of all periods.

Norman Mailer, American novelist and journalist, best known for using a form of journalism-called New Journalism-that combines the imaginative subjectivity of literature with the more objective qualities of journalism. The miscellany’s naked self-revelation won the admiration of a younger generation seeking alternative styles of life and art.

Praise for Norman Mailer loomed over American letters longer and larger than any other writer of his generation. A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent. Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure. A devastatingly alive and original creative mind. Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance. The largest mind and imagination American literature.

This pamphlet series has been hailed by critics, teachers, and librarians as an ideals means of introducing both students and general readers to American writers of all periods. Choice has commented: "For the small library this series offers at small cost introductions by reputable critics o dozens of significant authors, and the larger the library the greater the number of undergraduate students looking for a place to start on some writer." The New York Times Book Review has called the pamphlets "extraordinarily good," pointing out that "they are just long enough (forty-eight pages) to permit a real survey of an author's work and short enough to attract the casual reader, the anxiety-ridden student, and the professor desperate for the straight word on an unfamiliar writer."
