New York, Nov 25 (ANI): Late American author Norman Mailer gave his last advice for the lovelorn in his upcoming and last book, On God: An Uncommon Conversation.

The two-time Pulitzer Prize winner said that there was no point searching for love, because it is a reward and not a solution.

“It struck me that everyone I knew, including myself, was always looking for love, the New York Post quoted him, as stating in his book.

‘Ah, if I could find love, it would solve my problems.’ Some years ago, however, I found myself saying to my children, ‘Don’t go searching for love.

Love is not a solution but a reward.’ So long as you go searching for love directly, you will fail, because love is a grace and you don’t pursue grace, he wrote.

The book, co-written with Michael Lennon and due out next March, is excerpted by The Times of London.

Mailer died of acute renal failure on the morning of November 10, 2007, a month after undergoing lung surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, New York. He was 84-years-old. (ANI)
