This daringly original masterpiece deals with one of the demonic historical characters in the XXth century, namely Adolf Hitler. After having done the story of Jesus, Mailer swapped poles in his literary axis, depicting the boyhood of Little Adi, who happens to be the ‘child’ of an incestous marriage. Deftly enough, Mailer createsan appropriate agent to observe and to eyewitness the bringing-up of Herr Wolf. This agent is sent by Satan in the form of a demon, which I believe to be an apt idea.
This masterpiece (I am calling this book as a masterpiece based on no reading experience)is mixing fiction with facts(as told by reviews), and has of course been added to my reading list.
