The Executioners Song by Norman Mailer

I’ve started a reading list, of great books and although this was absent, I went with my gut and picked it up.

Gary Gilmore made decisions about the lives of two men. What made him of interest was he extended his decision to the matter of his punishment. He chose execution by firing squad.

The book is in two parts, with the first being about Gilmore and the second about the courts and media, alongside showing the strain on the people who fall prey to such times.

The prose is crisp, and structurally, Mailer knows when we need to stay with a character or a setting and when we need to move on.

I don’t know how I feel about Gilmore. There is something that repells me but also draws some admiration for the manner in which he sometimes articulates himself.

A challenging book, but you won’t be same person once you’ve finished it.

My book Until She Sings is out now.

‘Honestly?’ I said.

‘Yes.’ he said.

He almost sounded amused. Continue reading
