The question is, of course: "will this be one of the good ones?"

From barnes and noble:
The Castle in the Forest by Norman Mailer
Norman Mailer, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author and one of our nation's most treasured literary heavyweights, takes on one of history's most chilling figures in this haunting fictional chronicle of Adolf Hitler's boyhood. Narrated by a mysterious SS figure, the story weaves together a chilling tapestry of unforgettable characters and details including young Adolf from birth, his father and mother, his sisters and brothers, and the intimate details of his childhood and adolescence. With stunning originality, Mailer explores the origins of Hitler's evil and the nature of good and evil in all of us.

I'll let you know unless you get there first in which case you can let me know. It's on my shortlist along with Thomas Pynchon's "Against The Day," Walter Mosley's "White Butterfly" (selling for a quarter at the local library's book sale!) and "The Complete Peanuts 1961-62" (by some guy named Charles Schulz).

I love Norman Mailer -- The Naked and the Dead, The Executioner's Song, The Armies of the Night, the criminally underrated Why Are We In VietNam and the 14 other of his books I've read ...
