An American Dream

By Mailer, Norman




An American Dream is Norman Mailer's fourth novel, published by Dial Press. Mailer wrote it in serialized form for Esquire, consciously attempting to resurrect the methodology used by Charles Dickens and other earlier novelists, with Mailer writing each chapter against monthly deadlines. The book is written in a poetic style heavy with metaphor that creates unique and hypnotizing narrative and dialogue.

An American Dream - Advance Review Copy with Ephemera and Photograph

Mailer, Norman

New York, NY: Dial, 1965. New York, NY, Dial Press, 1965. First edition, advance review copy with publicity photograph of Mailer and advance review note laid in. 8vo. Blue cloth with silver lettering embossed on spine and front board, gray endpapers, rough cut pages, 270 pp. The milieu of "An American Dream" is New York City; the nighttime of plush East Side duplex apartments, of police precinct stations, of after-hours clubs, of Lower East side tenements. Onto this environment Mailer impresses his singular imagination, creating a classic world of action and horror that takes on the dimensions of an American myth. Dust jacket has slight shelf wear, bindings are slightly sunned at extremities, writing on rear endpaper, text block tight, clean and appears gently read. Very good in a very good dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Advance Copy.

AN AMERICAN DREAM.

Mailer, Norman.

New York:: The Dial Press,. 1965.. First edition. From the collection of Adeline Lubell-Naiman. INSCRIBED, "To Adeline - In return for a long letter / Norman / Feb 1965." Spine unevenly faded, otherwise about very good in worn but still presentable dust jacket. Adeline Lubell-Naiman was the editor instrumental in the eventual publication of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD. In 1946, while an editor at Little, Brown, Lubell-Naiman convinced Mailer to submit the first 200 pages of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD, which she talked up to her publisher. Unfortunately, she was also the one to suggest historian and critic Bernard DeVoto read the manuscript--he recommended not publishing. But Mailer submitted it to Rinehart, who published the book in 1948. Over the years, Lubell-Naiman remained close friends with Mailer and his wives. In the summer of 1968 she even played the role of "Adeline McCarthy," a president of a women's college in Mailer's film "Maidstone" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center website). .
