One of the giants of American letters, Norman Mailer was a novelist, journalist, biographer, and filmmaker; a provocateur, as well as a passionate observer; and a husband, father, and serial philanderer—though perhaps nothing characterized Mailer more than his unbounded ambition. Michael Lennon, chair of the editorial board of The Mailer Review, knew and worked with the author over the course of 35 years. He captures Mailer in all his sharp complexities as he self-consciously invented and reinvented himself throughout his lifetime.

"In the hands of this superb biographer, Norman Mailer comes vividly to life—irresistible, brilliant, formidable, hungry for fame, and endlessly fascinating. Lennon's great achievement lies in matching Mailer's energy and talent with his own. This is surely one of the best biographies ever written of an American writer."—Doris Kearns Goodwin

"A mighty undertaking befitting Mailer's lifetime of protean output.... Lennon is a fluid writer, and he's done his homework. There's not a paragraph in this enormous book that doesn't contain a nugget of something you should have known or wish you had known. Lennon has it all, and he has it down. And despite being his subject's literary executor, he has not sanded the corners of a career and life, each of which has plenty of texture and lots of sharp edges."—NYTBR
