Romanen handlar om soldater i andra världskrigets strider i Stilla havet och utspelar sig på den helt fiktiva ön Anopopei. Mailers egna upplevelser under andra världskriget ligger som grund till boken.

En stor roman om kärlek, huvudsakligen om dess fysiska sida.
A roman à clef, the metaphorical "Deer Park" is Desert D'Or, California (a fictionalized Palm Springs). A fashionable desert resort, Hollywood's elite converge there for fun and games and relaxation. The novel's protagonist, Sergius O'Shaughnessy (a recently discharged Air Force officer), is a would-be novelist who experiences the moral depravity of the Hollywood community first hand.

En roman om Hitlers förfäder och senare uppväxt. Jag blev inte riktigt klok på denna roman, kanske för att jag läste den på engelska. Men många - långa - perioder var för mig inte särskilt intressanta. Jag begriper faktist inte varför Mailer skrev denna roman. Betyget hålls uppe av att jag gillade hans språk, det var bitvis underhållande.
