The writer :
"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."
