Miller On Mailer

Miller: "Many people have written to me asking what I thought of Genius and Lust, they seem to be as puzzled as I was by his intent.'What do you make of it Henry?!' they ask me.It sure as hell beats me. I don't know what he was trying to get across. Sometimes I wonder if he himself knows. It's either too far over my head, or just a poor piece of writing. I like Norman as a man, but as a writer I really can't recommend him."

Over at Blog About Town, David Marc Fisher has posted--in honour of Henry's birthday on December 26th--a piece about Miller and Norman Mailer (who died this year). Included is the quote above, and several others, culled from Twinka Thiebaud, from the 1981 book Reflections.

I had previously posted an item listing the synopsis of a Today Show piece from 1976 in which Mailer and Miller were interviewed upon the release of Genius & Lust (Mailer's essay on Miller).

A curious addition to the Blog About Town posting is a YouTube clip of 1950s TV program You Bet Your Life, in which Lord Buckley drops a reference to Henry Miller while speaking with host Groucho Marx (it occurs at timecode 4:22).

Just for the record: Genius and Lust is a book, not an essay.
