At age 80, the prolific and Pulitzer Prize-winning Norman Mailer attacks George W. Bush's rationale for the Iraq war "in the name of Christianity." Mailer produced the two-hour work for audio by excerpting parts of recent interviews and conversations, and narrating additional commentary in his gravelly, but eloquent and distinct, speaking voice. Loading his observations with personal conclusions and beliefs, he cites little supporting evidence for his expository rhetoric, which winds through many decades and parts of the world. Mailer concludes his post 9/11 essay by asking if Americans are willing to give up freedom for security. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
