  • Obituary: Norman Mailer
    "Norman Mailer, who has died aged 84, was the bad boy of post-war American literature. Short and stocky and with opinions on almost every subject, he combined a formidable writing talent with the streetwise attitude of a prize fighter."

    He "remained the authentic, boastful, outrageous voice of a whole generation."
