Kennedy, Lizabeth Cohen, Thomas A.
Background[ edit ] InMailer wrote two regular columns: Mailer also split with his third wife Jeanne Campbell and met Beverly Bentley who would become his fourth.
Bentley and Mailer took a long car trip, notably visiting army buddy "Fig" Gwaltney in Arkansas, viewing an autopsy of a cancer victim, watched the Sonny Liston and Floyd Patterson fight in Las Vegasand spent time with the Beats in San Francisco. Mailer officially divorced Campbell, after he and Bentley were married.
Similarly, Mailer seems to have drawn on his stabbing of his second wife Adele Morales in Rojack's murdering of his wife Deborah. I wanted to create a man who was larger than myself yet somewhat less successful. That way, ideally, his psychic density, if I may use a private phrase, would be equal to mine — and so I could write from within his head with comfort.
Rojack feels liberated by the violence and imagines himself receiving messages from the moon, perceiving voices that command him to deny his guilt. He makes the death appear as a suicide, and maintains his innocence no matter how intense the scrutiny or severe the consequences.
In the course of the next twenty four hours, Rojack sets his will against the New York City Police Department, the intimidation of an erratic black entertainer who draws a knife on him, and the gathered political clout of his dead wife's father, Barney Oswald Kelly, who suggests that higher political affairs have an interest in Rojack's fate.
Chapter summaries[ edit ] The Harbors of the Moon[ edit ] Rojack vomits over the balcony at a party and considers suicide. He leaves the party and calls his estranged wife Deborah, going over there at her invitation.
The maid, Ruta, lets him in, and he notices that Deborah has been drinking. She belittles him in his time of need, and he strangles her on the floor. He returns to Deborah's room, cleans her up, and throws her over the balcony making her death appear as a suicide.
He calls down to Ruta that Mrs. Rojack has killed herself. A Messenger from the Maniac[ edit ] Rojack asks Ruta to tell the cops nothing about their encounter, and he runs to the street and sees Cherry Melanie, a night club singer, for the first time.
He sees Deborah's body, smashed and hit by a car and meets Detective Roberts. They go back upstairs, and Rojack fabricates a story about Deborah having cancer as the cause of her suicide. They want to take Rojack downtown, and they meet Lt.
Leznicki on the way out. Leznicki and O'Brien badger him on the way to the dept where they continue to lean on him. Rojeck learns that one of the cars in the pile-up caused by Deborah was Eddie Ganucci, a mob boss wanted on a subpoena.
He sees Cherry again and is drawn to her. Turns out Deborah had cancer, and they release Rojack. He walks to where Cherry sings, in a club in Greenwich Village.
Green Circles of Exhaustion[ edit ] Rojack drinks and listens to Cherry sing.
He has a wave of nausea and vomits in the bathroom. He joins Cherry and her "friends" for a drink, verbally sparing with her "date" Romeo. She and Rojack flirt and kiss; Rojack gets a call from Roberts who warns him to get out of there.
He has an encounter with Tony, who orders Cherry to sing another set. She sings a hymn, and Tony fires her.Chapter outlines from "American Pageant (13th edition)" to help you review what you've read, chapter-by-chapter.
