Of a Fire on the Moon is a fascinating synthesis of science and literature about the flight of Apollo 11 written from the unique vantage point of one of America’s premier literary journalists. This is a signed first edition, Little Brown, 1970. Mailer hung around Houston and the Cape for months to do his original reporting. Some may feel the book lacks depth or is overly cynical. But I really like Mailer’s wit, penetrating insight and philosophical scope.
