Norman Mailer on Michiko Kakutani.
Q. What is your greatest fear?New York Magazine.
A. That I will never meet Michiko Kakutani and so not be able to tell her what I think of her. She has an unseemly haste to rush into print with the first very bad review of any book I write. She does this ahead of publication.
That is a strategy. If the first review of a book is dreadful, an author needs at least three good ones to change that first impression."
