He initials a typed note, his characteristically tart reply to a request to sign one of his books.
Autograph Note signed: "N M", at bottom of 8½x11 typed letter. To George Wilson, Albuquerque, New Mexico. In response to a letter dated 1990 April 16, requesting that Mailer sign a copy of his book, The Prisoner of Sex, and enclosing money for postage, Mailer replies in full: "I don't want three dollars from a man who won't take the trouble to buy his own stamps." Norman Mailer's first novel, The Naked and the Dead (1948), was a best selling account of combat in World War II. Mailer won two Pulitzer Prizes: the first for The Armies of the Night (1969), a nonfiction narrative about a protest march on the Pentagon; the second for The Executioner's Song (1979), about the life and execution of serial killer Gary Gilmore. Mailer, who co-founded "The Village Voice" and ran for mayor of New York, has published 39 books to date. The outspoken and quarrelsome Mailer, married six times, has his share of detractors, but his literary skills are widely admired. Lightly creased. Stray ink mark above note. Otherwise, fine condition.
