dc.description.abstract This article discusses the work of the writer, Norman Mailer, who died in 2007, in the context of his Judaism. The author claims that, although Jews do not typically identify Mailer as a Jew, in the same way they do Bernard Malamud, Saul Bellow or Philip Roth, Mailer was, in fact, a religious writer. Although his work and political involvements were not explicitly concerned with Jewish topics, "[his] ideology, as an American writer and social commentator, stems from the activist or prophetic side of Judaism."
