Buckley and Mailer

The Difficult Friendship That Shaped the Sixties

by Kevin M. Schultz
Publication Date: 14/06/2016
RRP  $29.95 $27.95
A lively chronicle of the 1960s through the surprisingly close and incredibly contentious friendship of its two most colorful characters.

Norman Mailer and William F. Buckley, Jr., were towering personalities who argued publicly and vociferously about every major issue of the 1960s: the counterculture, Vietnam, feminism, civil rights, the Cold War. Behind the scenes, the two were friends and trusted confidantes. In Buckley and Mailer, historian Kevin M. Schultz delivers a fresh and enlightening chronicle of that tumultuous decade through the rich story of what Mailer called their "difficult friendship." From their public debate before the Floyd Patterson-Sonny Liston heavyweight fight and their confrontation at Truman Capote's Black-and-White Ball, to their involvement in cultural milestones like the antiwar rally in Berkeley and the March on the Pentagon, Buckley and Mailer explores these extraordinary figures' contrasting visions of America.
