    1. I don't know for sure why I read this except that I have a fascination for Mailer. I don't particularly recommend it to the general reader but I am glad I read it. The book is a collection of articles originally written by Mailer for various magazines and newspapers between June, 1960 and August, 1963. In collecting these writings for book form, Mailer added later comments and did some revisions. On publication day John F Kennedy was still alive.Throughout Mailer rails about American society and [...]


    2. This book was actually a flimsy excuse for another compilation of the author's non-fiction writing, in this case in the guise of "papers" that might actually be of interest and use to then-President Kennedy (the book was published prior to the assassination). Of what possible use the author's views on black sexuality, masturbation and the soul of a sardine might have been to JFK remains a mystery. All that being said, there is brilliant and provocative writing to be found here; the account of th [...]


    3. VII: In America few people will trust you unlces you are irreverent.p.15 In the flabby American spirit there is buried a sadist who find the bullfight contempible--What he really desires are gladiators.p.175 We gave our freedom away a long time ago. We gave it away in all the revolutions we did not make, all the acts of courage we found a way to avoid, all the roots we destroyed in fury at that past which would still haunt our deeds.p.237 Champions are prodiges of will--one of the elements which [...]


    4. There were many 5-star sections of this book, where Mailer goes on exceptionally about all sorts of existential topics, as they relate to JFK and the early 60s. As a time capsule, it's invaluable. Nevertheless, there were a few sections that were unfortunately callous, ignorant, and unreadable. For example, he claims that masturbation is worse than rape. I still want to read a great deal more Mailer, because he did have some quality ideas in beautiful language. Obviously, I do not believe the af [...]


    5. If the goal of a piece of writing is to make the reader think, then this work is a real success. Mailer is not a pleasant, or particularly admirable, man, but his fascination with his own subconscious forces the reader to confront many different ideas.In addition, the article "Superman Goes to the Supermarket" is one of the finest essays I have read. It is too bad in a way, because he starts the collection with it, and it's all downhill from there.


    6. At some point Norman Mailer probably should have been president, but this collection of essays, interviews, and articles from the Kennedy years is a brilliant literary equivalent. If I ever have children I'll give this, Advertisements for Myself, and Cannibals and Christians to them when they become adolescents as guidebooks for leading existential lives.
