1024 pages. Softcover. Good condition. FICTION. "What is the value of a single life? " In answer to that ageless cry, that agonizing question, Norman Mailer tells the story of Gary Gilmore, convicted of murder, who was executed in January 1977. He recreates Gilmore's tormented world from the recorded testimonies of his lover Nicole and those of his friends, relatives, employers, victims, as well as policemen, detectives, prison guards, judges, lawyers, psychiatrists, journalists. It is a story of nine haunted months, that doomed interval of time between Gilmore's release on parole from prison until his senseless killings delivered him over to his final hour. "Our greatest chronicler of contemporary America."--The New York Times (Key Words: Fiction, Novels, Pulitzer Prize Winners, Gary Gilmore, Norman Mailer Murderers).
