Comments Mornings with Mailer: A Recollection of Friendship

  • Kerry

    I loved this book – because it has everything I could ever ask fror in a book. It’s about the writing process, it’s about one of the greatest American writers, about Provincetown, about the relationships between people and the ways we learn from each other and grow.This book inspired me on many levels.


  • Carl Rollyson

    In 2004, Dwayne Raymond accepted Mailer's invitation to work as his literary secretary. Although Mailer already had the redoubtable Judith McNally situated at his Brooklyn home and in charge of his literary affairs for 25 years, he needed a man in Provincetown, where he had settled for most of the year to work on his last books, including his well-received novel, "The Castle in the Forest," detailing the early life of Adolf Hitler.Raymond provides riveting descriptions of Mailer's work methods, [...]

    3.5 stars"Here. Read this." Hubby tossed me Mornings with Mailer from the "New Book" shelf at the library. I don't know anything about Norman Mailer. His name was vaguely familiar but I've never read any of his books. I know nothing of his political or religious views, much less his personal life, so I started this book with very fresh eyes. Mailer sounds like someone that I would have been impressed with in person but terribly intimidated by. Based on the stories told in this book, I very much [...]


  • Jay

    I didn't know much about Norman Mailer before reading this book, but Dwayne Raymond presents a story of his time with Mailer that creates a touching account of his time assisting Mailer. His memoir presents us with another view of not only Mailer, but his family, and what it's like working with a major author. We learn a lot about the writing process, including all the background processes that tend to go unnoticed. Above all, Raymond tells a story that is easy to read, told in his own voice, wi [...]


  • Sull

    Pretty good read on Mailer's last years as a curmudgeonly writer in Provincetown. The man loved to write, right up until the very end! The author of this memoir was his assistant, chef, friend, errand-runner. There were no blinding insights, just a measure of understandable hero worship (--the guy was not only his employer but one of THE world-famous talents of the 20th Century). Also a few spats and misunderstandings. But mostly this is a plain book about friendship and accomodation, which is a [...]


  • Unbridled

    I find I miss Norman - hard to believe he's been dead since what, 2007? Could it be? 2007? Raymond was Norman's assistant in the final couple years of his life. The book was fine when it wrote of Norman, a bit tiring when it slid into its own conceits (go back to Norman!); but overall, a nice and pleasant read. Where are you Norman? Can you hear the screams? Can you smell the fear? Can you see the end?


  • Sarah Bauman

    This was a fabulous read and I highly recommend it. It's a book that is a wonderful insight into the final years of Norman's life. I could not put the book down. The author who wrote this book and the wonderful fortune and blessing to get to work with Norman. If you are a fan of Norman Mailer and even if you are not. This is a must read and worth the time. After reading this book, you might want to go pick up some of his previous novels to read.


  • Jett

    Great inside view of Norman Mailer's last years from his assistant. Mailer was one of the top writers and influences of the 20th and early 21st century and yet in some ways, he was a private man. This gives you a look at the last decade of his life. For writers, there is much about work habits and expectations to be learned from a master.


  • Helen Gallagher

    Am reading this now for review. Despite the name reminding everyone of Tuesdays with Morrie, this is neat - a young waiter gets the change to be Normal Mailer's personal assistant in his home. I'm only half-way through and I want it to last a while.


  • Eva

    A good insight of Mailer's last years. It just reminded me how "normal" Mailer was. Dwayne Raymond describes just perfectly those little moments he lived with him, the conflicts, the moments he shared with Mailer's family. I think it was a well-balanced friendship nicely written.


  • Kathi

    I am apparently one of the very few that did not enjoy this book. I don't believe I have ever read one of Norman Mailer's book and after reading this, I am even less inclined to read one. He seemed like a cranky, rude old man and I did not find this to be an endearing story.


  • Deborah Brown

    Although some reviews were not great,I loved every moment of this book.Loved hearing about how Mailer's mind worked and how he went about his craft.Also loved reading about Provincetown.


  • Edward

    Did a book review of it here - youtu/xGrPgGs0Jg0


  • Drea

    What a lovely book. I read this in pieces - just so it would last a bit longer.


  • Lillian

    a very enjoyable read even if I didn't know anythingabout Norman Mailer.

  • Karen

    A really good book about a young waiter in Provincetown who comes to become Mailer's aide in all matters. Sad in the end.
