Gilmore was the first person to be executed in the United States since the re-instatement of the death penalty in 1976. In April 1976, Gilmore, aged 35, was released from prison after serving 13 years for armed robbery in Indiana. He was flown to Utah to live with his cousin Brenda Nicol, who agreed to be his sponsor and tried to help him find work. Gilmore soon met and became romantically involved with Nicole Baker, a 19-year-old widow with two young children who was separated from her second husband. Despite his efforts to reform himself, Gilmore had a pattern of emotional volatility and self-destructive behavior, resulting in fighting, stealing, and using drugs.
After Baker broke up with Gilmore in July, he murdered two men in two separate robberies on succeeding days. Gilmore was turned in by Brenda Nicol. He was convicted of murder at trial in September and sentenced to death. The execution was stayed on three occasions. Gilmore became a national media sensation after he fought to have his execution performed as soon as possible. He and Baker agreed to a suicide pact that resulted in each of them suffering temporary comas in November. Based almost entirely on interviews with the family and friends of both Gilmore’s and his victims’, the book is exhaustive in its approach.
Divided into three sections, the book focuses on the events leading up to the murders, and the trial and execution of Gilmore, including full documentation of Gilmore’s court appearances and his decision to demand his execution rather than to continue the appeals process. The first section of the book deals with Gilmore’s early life, his numerous detentions in juvenile crime facilities, and later, prison. It details his release some months prior to his first murder and the relationships he establishes during that time. The second section focuses more extensively on Gilmore’s trial, including his refusal to appeal his death sentence, his dealings with Lawrence Schiller, and his attorneys’ continued fight on his behalf.
In interviews, Mailer discussed what motivated him to invest so much time interviewing everyone involved with Gary Gilmore. On one occasion, he said that Gilmore « appealed to me because he embodied many of the themes I’ve been living with all my lifelong ». Gilmore decides that he is willing to die, he takes on a certain dignity Gilmore has developed something of a romantic faith. Gilmore’s effort, from about the time he enters prison, is to conduct himself so that he can die what he would himself credit as a ‘good death’.
