Publisher Description

BONUS: This edition contains an A Ticket to the Circus discussion guide.

In this revealing memoir, told with southern charm and wit, Norris Church Mailer depicts the full evolution of her colorful life—from her childhood in a small Arkansas town all the way through her intense thirty-three-year marriage with Norman Mailer and his heartbreaking death. She met Norman by chance while in her early twenties and they fell in love in one night. Theirs was a marriage full of friendship, betrayal, doubts, understanding, challenges, and deep, complicated, lifelong passion. The couple’s New York parties were legendary, and their social circle included such luminaries as Jacqueline Kennedy, Truman Capote, and Gore Vidal. Complete with the couple’s intimate letters, this candid and unforgettable memoir is a great American love story.

Real, Funny, Touching

I enjoyed learning the "back story" and so appreciate Norris' honesty. The timing of my reading this book is a true gift as Norman's end stage is quite coincidental with a loved one in my life. I will miss this book and will explore her two others.
