r.i.p. norman mailer

norman mailer died today, aged 84. even when he was full of shit (imagining himself duking it out with hemingway), he was a great writer. advertisements for myself and the naked and the dead made the biggest impression on me, but the armies of the night and miami and the seige of chicago were important countercultural chronicles. and he helped found the village voice.
