Naked and the Dead

Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: John Buffalo Mailer

Date: August 2016

Duration: 26 hours 17 minutes

Summary:

Hailed as one of the finest novels to come out of the Second World War, The Naked and the Dead received unprecedented critical acclaim upon its publication and has since enjoyed a long and well-deserved tenure in the American canon. This fiftieth anniversary edition features a new introduction created especially for the occasion by Norman Mailer.

Written in fascinating detail, the story follows an army platoon of foot soldiers who are fighting for the possession of the Japanese-held island of Anopopei. Composed in 1948 with the wisdom of a man twice Mailer's age and the raw courage of the young man he was, The Naked and the Dead is representative of the best in twentieth-century American writing.

"Best novel yet about World War II." ?Time

"Brutal, agonizing, astonishingly thoughtful." ?Newsweek

"Vibrant with life, abundant with real people, full of memorable scenes. To call it merely a great book about the war would be to minimize its total achievement." ?The Philadelphia Inquirer

"The most important American novel since Moby-Dick." Providence Journal

"Nightmarish masterpiece of realism." ?Cleveland News

    Mailer did an amazing service to this work. As the narrator, John Buffalo Mailer added life to his fathers work in a way that only a progeny could master. The timing, the consistency and the amazing articulation of American dialect pays tribute to his progenitor. Thank you for your craftsmanship.
