Tom Wolfe: “Lamento no haber sido más mezquino con Norman Mailer”

El padre del llamado Nuevo Periodismo y autor, entre otras, de La hoguera de las vanidades, es un referente cultural de las últimas décadas. RADICAL CHIC .pdf. Elegidos para la gloria.

Frank Sinatra, holding a glass of bourbon in one hand and a cigarette in the other, stood in a dark corner of the bar between two attractive but fading blondes who sat waiting for him to say something.

But he said nothing; he had been silent during much of the evening, except now in this private club in Beverly Hills he seemed even more distant, staring out through the smoke and semidarkness into a large room beyond the bar where dozens of young couples sat huddled around small tables or twisted in the center of the floor to the clamorous clang of folk-rock music blaring from the stereo.

The two blondes knew, as did Sinatra’s four male friends who stood nearby, that it was a bad idea to force conversation upon him when he was in this mood of sullen silence, a mood that had hardly been uncommon during this first week of November, a month before his fiftieth birthday. Sinatra with a cold is Picasso without paint, Ferrari without fuel—only worse.

John Huston and “The Red Badge of Courage” Reinhardt said, “I’ll bet I’m the only producer who ever had Albert Einstein as an actor.”

Attention now focussed on him. He said that he had been making an Army film called “Know Your Enemy—Germany,” the beginning of which showed some notable German refugees. “Anthony Veiller, a screen writer who was my major, told me to tell Einstein to comb his hair before we photographed him. Come In, Lassie! Just then, we were approached by Sam Wood, the producer, who was feeling grumpy, according to Merve, because his latest picture, “Ivy,” had cost $2,000,000 to make and was expected to gross only $1,500,000.

“Glad to see you, Sam,” said Merve. “Listen, Sam, I want you to tell this young lady what you think of the way Congress investigated us here in Hollywood.” “I say Congress ought to make everybody stand up publicly and be counted!” Mr. Wood shouted.

He spoke with a perceptible Midwestern accent, despite the Indian talk. “He like book, I think,” he added, giving Myers a little shake and beaming down at him. REBELIÓN EN LA GRANJA.

WARS and revolutions have always provided the drama and commanded the attention that turns reporters into personalities.

Our Man in Saigon

Thus Dorothy Thompson’s star began to rise when Hitler expelled her from Germany, and Ed Murrow’s baritone became familiar as the bombs began to fall on the rooftops of London. The war in Vietnam is a small one, but it is the only one around at the moment, and it has already begun to produce something of a figure: David Halberstam, The New York Times correspondent in Saigon; a process the more remarkable since reporters of the printed word are so overshadowed by the familiar faces that deliver narrations over television film. What has helped bring Halberstam to attention is not just his reporting. It is the way the U.S. press in South Vietnam has become not only an observer, but a factor in the intramural squabbling that has gone along with the war.

Halberstam is twenty-nine. That Halberstam’s copy is watched closely in both Washington and Saigon is sure. 11:15 a.m. The Foamy Fields. I never saw my tentmates clearly, because they were always in the tent by the time I turned in at night, when we were not allowed to have lights on, and they got up a few minutes before I did in the morning, when it was still dark.
