Praise

Praise for The Spooky Art
 
The Spooky Art shows Mailer’s brave willingness to take on demanding forms and daunting issues. . . . He has been a thoughtful and stylish witness to the best and worst of the American century.”The Boston Globe
 
“At his best—as artists should be judged—Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure. There is enough of his best in this book for it to be welcomed with gratitude.”The Washington Post
 
“[The Spooky Art] should nourish and inform—as well as entertain—almost any serious reader of the novel.”—Baltimore Sun

“The richest book ever written about the writer’s subconscious.”The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“Striking . . . entrancingly frank.”Entertainment Weekly

“A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent.”The New Yorker
 
“A devastatingly alive and original creative mind.”Life
 
“Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance.”The New York Review of Books
