Mailer is a wonderful writer. Susan Mailer, that is. In her first memoir, In Another Place, Susan shines brightly as she presents vignettes of her own formative moments alongside valuable glimpses into the life and times of her father Norman—one of the most prominent literary lions and public intellectuals of the latter half of the twentieth century. That is not to say that the figure of Susan’s father dominates the entire memoir, for she shares her own life in crisp, vibrant prose that captures the essence of moments that are both remarkable and universally resonant.
