Description

"Amid the cactus wilds some two hundred miles from Hollywood lies a privileged oasis called Desert D'Or. It is a place for starlets, directors, studio execs, and the well-groomed lowlifes who cater to them. And, as imagined by Norman Mailer in this blistering classic, Desert D'Or is a moral proving ground, where men and women discover what they really want-and how far they are willing to go to get it. As Mailer traces their couplings and uncouplings, their uneasy flirtation with success and self-extinction, he creates a legendary portrait of America's machinery of desire. - - - "A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent.[Mailer] drives us up and down The Deer Park at breakneck speed. It is a trip through unfamiliar country, for a time funny and then unnerving." -The New Yorker "Savage.brilliant.exhilarating." -The Atlantic Monthly "Entertaining and wise.In addition to his furious energy and true ear, Mailer is simpatico with humanity.on a level rare in American fiction." -The New Republic"
