Norman Mailer, one of the last surviving literary lions to roar out of World War II, died Saturday morning.
Mailer, 84, died of acute renal failure at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, said J. Michael Lennon, his official biographer.
In a fiesty career of highs and lows, Mailer wrote more than 40 books, won two Pulitzer Prizes and managed to be mentioned in everything from the TV show King of the Hill to John Lennon's Give Peace A Chance.
As a novelist, essayist and reporter, he took on celebrities, war, politics, boxing, God, sex and perhaps his favorite theme, the battle between good and evil.
He had hoped to write at least one more novel.
