did anybody read this book?

Posted to WritersAndGenres

I never read it, but I remember the whole furor, several years ago, back in the 80's, when Norman Mailer was trying to justify this guy's behavior by calling him a genius. I remember glancing at the book in a bookstore and thinking, "not genius enough". But I didn't give it much of a chance, to be honest. I'd be curious to know if anybody read the whole thing, and what they thought.
