Aaron Sorkin's new Netflix film has brought the political upheaval of the late-1960s back into focus. Here, from Norman Mailer to Allen Ginsberg, are some books to dive deeper into the trial that put the Vietnam War itself on the stand, and its context.
Norman Mailer (1923-2007) was one of the great post-War American writers, both as a novelist and as one of the key inventors of the New Journalism. His books include the novels The Naked and the Dead, The Deer Park, Why Are We in Vietnam?, The Executioner's Song and Harlot's Ghost and the non-fiction works The Armies of the Night, A Fire on the Moon (published in the USA as Of a Fire on the Moon) and The Fight. He won the National Book Award and twice won the Pulitzer Prize.
