Writing in Restaurants

Paperback

Price: $16.00

Overview

Temporarily putting aside his role as playwright, director, and screen-writer, David Mamet digs deep and delivers thirty outrageously diverse vignettes. On subjects ranging from the vanishing American pool hall, family vacations, and the art of being a bitch, to the role of today’s actor, his celebrated contemporaries and predecessors, and his undying commitment to the theater, David Mamet’s concise style, lean dialogue, and gut-wrenching honesty give us a unique view of the world as he sees it.
