Superman Comes to the Supermarket: An Examination of Norman Mailer’s 1960 Essay on John F. Kennedy’s Presidential Campaign
Thursday, May 28, 2015, 7 p.m.

The late Norman Mailer saw in John F. Kennedy, “a hero [who could] capture the secret imagination of a people, and so be good for the vitality of his nation.” Mailer’s 1960 profile of the then-presidential candidate, written for Esquire magazine, galvanized excitement for Kennedy just days before the election, and its radical writing style changed the face of New Journalism.

Now Norman Mailer. JFK. Superman Comes to the Supermarket, a new book from TASCHEN, pairs this classic text with over 300 exhilarating photographs from the campaign trail in an extra-large format.

Join TASCHEN Editor Nina Wiener as she moderates a discussion between two of the book’s contributors: J. Michael Lennon, Mailer’s biographer, and Lawrence Schiller, award-winning photojournalist and filmmaker and Mailer’s long-time collaborator.

Nina Wiener studied literature and art history at Vassar College in New York before falling in love with making books. Since 2002 she has edited dozens of titles for TASCHEN, including Walton Ford’s Pancha Tantra, Norman Mailer’s MoonFire, and Lawrence Schiller’s Marilyn & Me.

J. Michael Lennon is Emeritus Professor of English at Wilkes University and the late Norman Mailer’s archivist and authorized biographer. He is the author of the authorized biography Norman Mailer: A Double Life (2013) and editor of Selected Letters of Norman Mailer (2014).

Lawrence Schiller began his career as a photojournalist for Life, Playboy, and Paris Match, among others, photographing some of the most iconic figures of the 1960s, from Lee Harvey Oswald to Robert F. Kennedy, from Ali and Foreman to Redford and Newman. His many book collaborations include the Pulitzer Prize-winning book with Norman Mailer, The Executioner's Song; and he has written five New York Times bestsellers. He has also directed seven motion pictures and miniseries for television; The Executioner's Song and Peter the Great won five Emmys. He is also the founder of The Norman Mailer Center & Writer’s Colony in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
