beachnm[1]We loved reading this Flavorwire post about literary homes that are up for sale, among them Dracula’s castle in Romania and Norman Mailer’s beachfront pad in Providence, Rhode Island. Mailer and his fourth wife, Norris, lived there for more than 30 years, while he wrote prolifically in his third-floor study, boxed in the basement, and played poker in the dining room.

The author’s oldest son, film producer Michael Mailer, tells The Boston Globe they’re asking $4 million for the waterfront Provincetown house, which is “filled with great memories and great family times,” but the children live in New York and beyond so it’s not practical to keep it in the family.
