Norman Mailer dead at 84 of renal failure

Just to say, I remember a very entertaining interview he did with Kurt Andersen for Studio 360 earlier this. This is the blurb from the Web site :

Norman Mailer is a heroic chronicler of America and a notorious troublemaker. He's won two Pulitzer prizes [Armies of the Night and The Executioner's Song], wrote biographies of Marilyn Monroe and Lee Harvey Oswald, as well as novels about the CIA and ancient Egypt and Jesus Christ. He has been a public figure, admired and attacked, in a way that few writers today can match. Mailer talks with Kurt about his career and his new book The Castle in the Forest, a story of Adolf Hitler’s youth, as told by a narrator who happens to be an actual demon.

Here's the obit from the AP.
