Norman Mailer died six years ago, and, already, five biographies have been written about him. The most recent is J. Michael Lennon's "Norman Mailer: A Double Life," which is a springboard for an essay on Mailer by Louis Menand in this week's issue. Here, Menand and the film critic Richard Brody talk about Mailer's life and legacy with the literary editor of the New Yorker's Web site, Sasha Weiss.
