PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) — Norman Mailer's children have put the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author's longtime Cape Cod home up for sale.
The author's oldest son, film producer Michael Mailer, tells The Boston Globe (http://b.globe.com/12FMB4O ) they're asking $4 million for the waterfront Provincetown house that Mailer called home from 1990 until his death in 2007.
The younger Mailer says the house is "filled with great memories and great family times," but the children live in New York and beyond so it's just not practical to keep it in the family.
Mailer began writing in Provincetown in the 1940s and bought the home in 1986.
The Norman Mailer Center and Norman Mailer Writers Colony have occupied the building rent free since the author's death, but couldn't come up with the money to buy it.
