Norman Mailer was a writer and serial philanderer and homophobe who enjoyed violence against women - both in his writings and in real life. He wasn't just callous and amoral, he relished violence. Mailer stabbed his wife, Adele Morales, in a drunken rage in November 1960 and beat his fourth wife repeatedly. And if that weren't bad enough, Mailer championed the release of an inmate, Jack Henry Abbott, who murdered a young waiter in Greenwich Village just weeks after getting parole in 1981. Consequently his standing as a great American writer quickly diminished upon his death.
