Book Details

Cultural Writing. THE ENDURING VISION OF NORMAN MAILER is Professor Barry H. Leeds' second book about one of America's most respected, most controversial, and most prolific authors. It looks at Mailer from where Leeds' first volume left off and takes him on through his most recent works. "Leeds' ideas are engaging, his enthusiasm infectious, and his prose mercifully free of critical jargon.Recommended for contemporary literature collections"--William Gargan in Library Journal. This is literary criticism with a heart and soul, and with an appreciation of subject which is so often missed in contemporary analysis.

Author Description

Barry H. Leeds, CSU distinguished Professor of English at Central Connecticut State University, is author of Ken Kesey (Ungar) and The Structured Vision of Norman Mailer (NYU Press). The Enduring Vision of Norman Mailer is Prof. Barry H. Leeds' second book about one of America's most respected, most controversial, and most prolific of authors. It looks at Mailer from where Leeds' first volume left off and takes him on through his most recent works. In addition, it reveals a side of Mailer that only a friend and confidant would know, a side which Leeds has come to understand and appreciate. Leeds carefully and intelligently weaves this personal Mailer into the Mailer persona and the Mailer art. This is literary criticism with a heart and soul, and with an appreciation of subject which is so often missed in contemporary analyses of this sort.
