"Now listen, you queer, stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I'll sock you in your goddamn face, and you'll stay plastered." Ah, the days of civilized discourse. They really didn't like each other. At all.

This one hit me kind of hard. I mean, he was clearly up there in age, but the sheer volume of his life is just astounding. Bill Maher once described him as the living version of The Most Interesting Man in the World, and it's kind of hard to argue that point. And I think the AP hit on the head when they called him,"...the last of a generation of writers who were genuine celebrities."

I'm bummed.

Norman Mailer punched Gore Vidal at a party after a bad review.

Still on the floor, Vidal declared:

"Once again, words fail Norman Mailer."

James Bond has never said anything as good as that.

He's gone, Mailer, Updike, Hunter S. Still got Roth and Wolfe I guess.
