The Time of Our Time

Hi Everyone,

I brought one of Norman Mailer's books along on my recent trip to Memphis, TN.
I grabbed the most recent one that I had purchased with some of my birthday funds:

a signed First Edition of The Time of Our Time (1998)

While I was in school - I was taught that it was real important to read the book jacket of a book - so with tired eyes (from wearing my contacts) I sat down to read the book jacket.

I absorbed what it said:
"He goes at the world like a tiger.
What will surprise many readers of The Time of Our Time
is what a shrewd and stylish tiger he has been."

My great Aunt explained to me that my mom, Vi, had called me "tiger" as a baby and I had just seen the part of the movie G.I. Blues where Elvis had called the baby in that movie "tiger".
