Dear Writers Write Followers

This is the week when we ask you to help support and grow Writers Write. If everybody reading this gave $10, our fundraiser would be over in a few days.

Literary Birthday – 31 January – Norris Church Mailer

Norris Church Mailer was born 31 January 1949 and died 21 November 2010

Three Quotes

  1. Well, I bought a ticket to the circus. I don’t know why I was surprised to see elephants.
  2. To me, the humour and irony was inherent. But you can’t transfer the twinkle in the eye to the page, so a lot of people treated everything he said as perfectly serious, like his famous comment that women should be kept in cages. Who would think he was serious about that?
  3. He said he needed to live that kind of double life, to know what his characters were going through.

Norris Church Mailer was an American writer. She is the author of the memoir, A Ticket to the Circus, and of several novels. She was also the widow of American novelist, Norman Mailer.
