Today is writer Norman Mailer's birthday, making the release of an excerpt from a book — as well as the book itself — a few weeks ago especially timely.
The blurb of Tough Guy: The Life of Norman Mailer by Richard Bradford describes it as a "merciless biography" of a "controversial figure," with cameos from a number of other famous figures.
One such figure: President John F. Kennedy.
You can read about how Mailer met JFK in an excerpt from Tough Guy that's available on Literary Hub.
