Formatted Abstract/Summary
In an interview with National Public Radio (27 January 2007) about his final novel The Castle in the Forest, Norman Mailer spoke of his attitude to the occult and his use of diabolism in his imagining of Hitler's conception and childhood.

In spite of his attempt to create an all-encompassing account of what made Hitler Hitler, Mailer leaves the reader with a sense of the inexplicable.
