“Vibrant with life, abundant with real people . . . [Mailer has] a scintillating skill in observation, a mature sense of meaning.”The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“This book is nothing short of amazing.”Newsweek
 
Barbary Shore [is] about the kind of country—and what you might call the psychic territory—that American war heroes were returning to.”The Guardian
 
Praise for Norman Mailer

“A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent.”The New Yorker
 
“Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure.”The Washington Post
