Norman Mailer

Norman Mailer was born in New Jersey in 1923. He grew up in Brooklyn and entered Harvard University to study engineering when he was only sixteen. During World War II, Mailer served in the Philippines, an experience which formed the basis of his famous debut novel, the bestselling The Naked and the Dead. A major figure in post-war American literature, Mailer’s other works include Barbary Shore, The Deer Park, Advertisements for Myself, Armies of the Night (for which he was awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award) and, most recently, The Gospel According to the Son.
