Crossing three millennia to Pharaonic Egypt this tale returns to that land s essences the war magic gods death and reincarnations the lusts ambitions jealousies and betrayals, Stephen Rojack is a decorated war hero a former Congressman and a certified public intellectual with his own television show He is also married to the very rich very beautiful and utterly amoral Deborah Caughlin Kelly But one night in the prime of his existence he hears the moon talking to him on the terrace of a fashionable New York high rise and it is urging him to kill himself It is almost as a defense against that infinitely seductive voice that Rojack murders his wife In this wild battering ram of a novel which was originally published to vast controversy in Norman Mailer creates a character who might be a fictional precursor of the philosopher killer he would later profile in i The Executioner s Song i As Rojack runs amok through the city in which he was once a privileged citizen Mailer peels away the layers of our social norms to reveal a world of pure appetite and relentless cruelty Sensual horrifying and informed by a vision that is one part Nietzsche one part de Sade and one part Charlie Parker i An American Dream i grabs the reader by the throat and refuses to let go, The Armies of the Night is an award winning nonfiction novel written by Norman Mailer He essentially creates his own genre for the narrative split into historicized amp novelized accounts of the March on the Pentagon His unique rendition of the nonfiction novel was one of only a few at the time amp received the most critical attention In Cold Blood by Truman Capote amp Hell s Angels by Hunter S Thompson had already been published Three months later Tom Wolfe would contribute The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test The book deals ostensibly with the March on the Pentagon anti Vietnam War rally in Washington DC While Mailer dips into familiar territory in his fiction self portrait the outlandish rd person account of himself along with self descriptions such as a Novelist Historian anti star hero are made far more complex by the narrative s overall generic identification as a nonfiction novel Two years before Armies was published In Cold Blood by Capote who d just been called by George Plimpton the inventor of the nonfiction novel claimed that the genre should exclude any mention of its subjectivity amp refrain from the st person While to some extent satirizing Capote s model Mailer s role in center stage is hardly self glamorizing as the narrative recounts the events leading up to the March as well as his subsequent arrest amp night in jail The st section History as a Novel begins From the outset let us bring you news of your protagonist with an account made by Time about Washington s scruffy Ambassador Theater normally a pad for psychedelic frolics was the scene of an unscheduled scatological solo last week in support of the peace demonstrations Its anti star was author Norman Mailer who proved even less prepared to explain Why Are We in Vietnam than his current novel bearing that title After citing the entire article he then closes Pen Pals with Now we may leave Time in order to find out what happened What creates the difference between his example amp Capote s isn t only the autobiography of Armies but the irony which guides the narrator towards the same objective of empiricism as that of In Cold Blood The nonconformity which he exhibits to Capote s criterion was the beginning of a feud that never resolved between the authors amp was ended with Capote s death in Ultimately Armies was a unique contribution to the newly founded genre which was otherwise somewhat preoccupied by Wolfe s theories of the new journalism A departure from Capote s more journalistic example of the form Armies suggests the historical value of a more contemporary mode of literature The year of its publication Mailer would begin work on another project Miami amp the Siege of Chicago after witnessing the Republican amp Democratic Nat l Conventions that year His recounting tho quite different in terms of his self portrait takes on a comparable rhetoric approach to evoking what he saw as historical underpinnings, Written in gritty journalistic detail the story follows an army platoon of foot soldiers who are fighting for the possession of the Japanese held island of Anopopei Composed in The Naked and the Dead is representative of the best in twentieth century American writing
