Bestseller Kindle The Castle in the Forest Is it possible to successfully novelize Adolf Hitler's life? Not if you're Norman Mailer. Mailer can't resist psychosexualizing everything. (Granted, it's a target-rich environment: Klara Pölzl, Adolf's mother, was the niece of Adolf's father Alois and (or) may have been his daughter; Klara called Alois "Uncle" throughout their marriage, apparently.) Mailer imagines Alois enjoying the feel of Adolf's buttocks as he beats him; he imagines a circle-jerk among school chums; Klara adores and celebrates little Adolf's little pink anus; the juvenile Adolf masturbates to a newspaper photo of the anarchist assassin of the Austrian Empress, Elisabeth of Bavaria, who happens to have a "dark little daub of a mustache" which reminds Adolf of his half-sister Angela's pubic hair glimpsed once when they slept in the same bed.A bigger problem with the novel is that it's just deeply boring. There's way too much about beekeeping, for one thing. The conceit of having a devil narrate in the first person - for, you see, Hitler's mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual development was guided closely by devils - is exceedingly tiresome.The novel ends with Hitler about age 18, having just passed his school exams after failing French a number of times. The school gives him a graduation certificate, which he loses, having passed out after a heavy bout of drinking. Knowing his mother will very much want to see the certificate, he goes to the school to ask for a replacement copy. The schoolmaster, disgustedly, shows Adolf the four pieces of the certificate; it turns out that the drunken Adolf had wiped his ass with it and torn it up. Adolf cleans up the certificate and glues it back together, telling his mother: "...the more I looked at it, the more did I realize how much you sacrificed for me, and how little I had understood. I tore it up to keep from crying like a baby."Klara wept with love when she heard why the certificate had come back to her in four pieces."It is even more valuable to me this way," she said. "I will be proud to put it into a frame."Two more novels charting Hitler's further life were to be written, but Mailer died the same year this was published.
