DEATHS FOR THE LADIES: And Other Disasters.

Mailer, Norman.

New York:: Putnam Sons. (1962).. First edition, paperwraps issue, of this "run of poems, short poems, very short poems, and turns of prose." From the collection of Adeline Lubell-Naiman. INSCRIBED with an elaborate drawing "The critic pursued by a theme [large scribbled drawing spanning inside front cover and first leaf] Love / (that is to say lustility [sic] and housefection [sic] to Lucky and Adeline) / Norman." This paperwraps issue came out at the same time as the small hardback printing. Very good. 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). .
