This review is from: The Executioner's Song (Arena Books) (Paperback)
Absolutely one of the most amazing novels in the English language, Norman Mailer was on fire with this one. The story of Gary Gilmore seemed sordid and not worth the effort, but Mailer took all that raw material and turned it into an epic love story-slash-tragedy where the characters pop off the page. This is a deep, amazing book that goes far beyond the true crime genre into "In Cold Blood" territory.
