Norman Mailer tells Hitler's story and his own

Norman Mailer
February 2, 2007
Norman Mailer is out with a new book on the life of Adolph Hitler. "The Castle in the Forest" is Mailer's first major work of fiction in a decade, and even at 84, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner hopes he still has one more book in him. In a Jan. 23 conversation with New York Times Book Review Editor Sam Tanenhaus, Mailer discussed his life, his writing and even his unsuccessful campaign for mayor of New York City.
