Norman Kingsley Mailer (January 31, 1923 – November 10, 2007) was an American novelist, journalist, essayist, playwright, film-maker, actor, and liberal political activist. His novel The Naked and the Dead was published in 1948, and brought him early and wide renown. His 1968 nonfiction novel Armies of the Night won the Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction as well as the National Book Award
In what is arguably his greatest book, America's most heroically ambitious writer follows the short, blighted career of Gary Gilmore, an intractably violent product of America's prisons who became notorious for two reasons: first, for robbing two men in 1976, then killing them in cold blood; and, second, after being tried and convicted, for insisting on dying for his crime. Norman Mailer tells Gilmore's story-and those of the men and women caught up in his procession toward the firing squad-with implacable authority, steely compassion, and a restraint that evokes the parched landscapes and stern theology of Gilmore's Utah.

Norman Mailer: No, I remember one line of dialogue. I remember you wagging your finger at me and saying, "Mailer, how long did your grandparents live?" And I said, "Well, they died in their late sixties. Mailer: But then what happens is that history comes along, and, history having its fashions, the survivor is overthrown. Vidal: Well, we can never calculate history: What begins with comedy ends with comed. n my short view of the matter. How many books have you written, Gore and Norman, and what has kept you writing? Vidal: If I'd counted them, I probably wouldn't have written them. You write because it's the natural thing for you to do.
