Description: Imagine that Ernest Hemingway, late in his career, had decided to tell the story of his life and times through a selection of his best writing. Mailer's The Time of Our Time is such a book: a great, boisterous portrait of our times, seen through the fiction and reportage of one of our greatest writers.

Mailer selected the contents of this book both chronologically and by theme so as to tell a continuous story. Included are passages from The Naked and the Dead, The Armies of the Night, The Executioner's Song, Ancient Evenings, and Harlot's Ghost, as well as many of his other works and his best-known magazine pieces. On display here are Mailer's enormous energies, his vast curiosity, and his amazing talent. Here, too, are his errors of judgment, both personal and literary. As a writer, Mailer eschewed all limits. He went at the world like a tiger. What will surprise many readers of this retrospective work is what a shrewd and stylish tiger he was.
