. . . . seems to be the question that people are asking themselves today in Arizona and Portugal.
Aaah, the weird unpredictability of the google search engine. May you never change.
Surely with Mailer's articles for Irving Howe's Dissent magazine in the 50s and his role in founding the Village Voice, he would have fallen more into the category of being a 'Debsian' Socialist? (Btw, it's been a bad year for 'Debsian' Socialism in the world of American Literature.)
But for the record: There's not much point in typing the words "Norman Mailer" + "Socialist" into the google search engine. You've guessed it . . . "Aah, the weird unpredictability of the google search engine. May you never change."
