Norman Mailer on the left and William F. Buckley on the right--lauded literary, political, and intellectual titans of their time--battled each other in public and admired each other in private. Here the private papers and libraries of these colorful public figures are thoroughly mined by author Shultz to create an entertaining, deeply intertwined sketch of two lives and the cataclysmic, heated era of the 1960s. Narrator Peter Berkrot's astringent East Coast timbre is direct, unadorned, and engaging. Well suited to the material, his clear, raspy tones express immediacy and urgency. This immersive and appealing audio presentation will emphatically inform listeners, including those who consider themselves apolitical.
