New Journalism,” literary journalism, was an attempt to, in the words of mailer, give reporting the “energy of art.
During this time, mailer also displayed an unexpected humility in the company of his fellow literary stars.
“As for [Bill] Clinton, leave him to heaven,” mailer writes.
“You hold the legacy of this paper in your hands,” mailer said at the rally, addressing VVM owners Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.
Everyone was in agreement: It was a night that mailer would have enjoyed and not only because he was the center of attention.
He inked each galley, placed it in the mailing machine, and then fed the papers into the mailer.
When she entered the editorial office Tom was putting the last of the papers through the mailer.
The great Pacific mailer was lost in the fog full half a mile away.
If they got us out there they could surround us and mailer the life out of us.
This is a very short and simple entry in Mr. mailer's journal, but it has most solemn significance.
