    This book by Carl Rollyson shows a tremendous amount of work in preparation and writing. The book to me, is a little confusing because it goes back and forth in time as it discusses various elements of Mailer's life. Mailer apparently is a very complex person, though a very gifted writer who has worked hard to present his craft to the public. There are so many aspects to the book and to Mailer's life that it was a little difficult for me to read and follow.

    This is a well-researched chronological organized look at the life of a complicated, insecure, and irascible writer. As readers work through the years, they will discover that Mailer was not an easy man to understand and yet was unwavering in his desire to write the stories as he saw fit. This interesting profile explains much of the myths and legends and surrounding Mailer's life and loves.

    This is a very well-written book. The writing flows well and isn't dry. I also found the subject to be interesting, which I did not expect.
