Village Interviews: Adele Mailer, continued.

at 7:30 PM

Dear Friends:

Once again, as everyone else is capitalizing on the death of Norman Mailer, I too will take another stab at him (figuratively speaking, of course) by rerunning the third part of my 1997 interview with Adele Mailer, in which she, as she stands in front of the Upper West Side apartment building where it happened for the first time since it happened in 1960, describes the incident during which she was stabbed by Norman Mailer. It is riveting watching her relive the experience at the scene of the crime. She also describes some of the parties she attended right before the stabbing at the houses of George Plimpton, a drunk Bucky Fuller and others.

See it this Wednesday, December 5, at 7:30 PM, on my shoestring cable show Famousx2, on Channel 67.

Adele is, unfortunately, best known for having been stabbed by Norman. However, she is more than that. Originally of Bay Ridge and of Peruvian/Spanish ancestry, Adele Morales Mailer stunned her family by moving to the Village in the mid-40s, where she had affairs with Village Voice founder Ed Fancher, Jack Kerouac and Phillip Roth. Then came Mailer.

This is a great interview with a fascinating and engaging woman. Don't miss it!If you are in Manhattan and have access to Time Warner, you can see it this Wednesday December 5, at7:30 pm (EST-that's NYC Eastern Standard Time) on channel 67. On the RCN system, that should be on channel 85. If you are outside of Manhattan, anywhere in the world, and you have a good high-speed connection on your computer, you can go
to http://www.mnn.org and click on channel 67 to see it at the same time. Sometimes MNN does screw up broadcasts, but usually they air things without too many problems.....so be patient.

Hey, I just logged onto Facebook and discovered all your requests. I'm so sorry I didn't find them sooner!

I responded to one already (muah!)

Most of the requests, when I try to respond to them, Facebook has a problem adding them to my profile, yet it also takes them away from my requests list. Argh! I'll try again later...
