This is not entirely unfitting, of course.

Born in New York City in 1914, Schulberg became a Californian when his father, a producer in the fledgling motion-picture industry, moved his family to Hollywood following World War I.

Dear Muffo : Thirty-Five Years in the Fast Lane. The stories are presented in 66 letters from Conrad to his friend, a UPI correspondent. Only a few of the letters read as if written with publication in mind.

There were two Norman Mailers. One enjoyed the attention and savored what he called the ego-gobblings of celebrity, while the other suspected that the compliments he received were ploys of phonies. Once I had been a young man whom many did not notice, but after the success of Naked, I was prominent but empty. I was a dependable pain in the ass to a great many people, because all through the first year I’d keep saying, Oh, now I will never know the experience of other people. I kept wanting to go back to what seemed like a sweet past when only a few people knew that I had talent.

Mailer wrote 12 novels in 59 years . shortly after The Naked and the Dead was published in May 1948. A New York Times best seller for 62 weeks, it was the only one of Mailer's novels to reach the number one position.

Norman Mailer recalled the evening Harold once saved his life. Mailer was drunk that night, he didn't notice the television set falling off the shelf above him, hardly even saw Harold, stronger than he looked, snatch the machine out of midair. Harold Conrad preserved half my head," Mailer said. You know what it's like to look in the mirror and see the big eight-oh looking back?"

We went over to the Riviera coffee shop and talked with Gene Kilroy.

The author describes his experiences as a newspaper reporter and boxing promoter and his involvement with celebrities including Muhammad Ali, Al Capp, and Damon Runyon in letters to his friend, the journalist Bob Musel
