Lights up on DAVID MAMET and COLEMAN, who are standing in a room, somewhere, who knows where, nobody knows. DAVID MAMET: Hey, COLEMAN: Hey, DM: You checked out my play? C: Yeah. I'm taking an online course from David Mamet and had to reread the play. Ironically, thanks to the playwright who introduced us to street-speak, the play now feels overly familiar, as if we've seen/heard thousands of stories like it. But Mamet's originality and dramatic craft elevate this above nearly all the subsequent imitations.

It is set in a less-than-ideal part of an anonymous American city and is a brief glimpse into one day in the life of three minor criminals, none of whom are very bright and two (if not all three) are less than honest. There is not much of a plot. They argue about doing a very minor job.

Something for your next season. I told him I’d read it over the weekend. You don’t need to read it. Just do i. .Mamet’s eyes sparkled and his upper lip twitched, but otherwise he held a straight. Tell you what, he said. I’ll put five grand in escrow, and if the play doesn’t win the Pulitzer, keep the money. I mustered enough solemnity to reply that I would read the script that night, and we parted. I was fifteen pages in before he left the building.

His other plays include American Buffalo, A Life in the Theatre, Oleanna, The Cryptogram, and Race. David Mamet has been a controversial, defining force in nearly every creative endeavor-now he turns his attention to politics. In recent years, David Mamet realized that the so-called mainstream media outlets he relied on were irredeemably biased, peddling a hypocritical and deeply flawed worldview.

American Buffalo, which won both the Drama Critics Circle Award for the best American play and the Obie Award, is considered a classic of the American theater. Newsweek acclaimed Mamet as the hot young American playwright. The New York Times exclaimed in admiration: The man can write! Other critics called the play a sizzler, super, and dynamite.

"The finest American playwright of his generation" (Sunday Times) A junk shop. Three small-time crooks plot to carry out the midnight robbery of a coin collection. In the hours leading up to the heist, friendship becomes the victim in a conflict between loyalty and business."This play is a parable about the US - not in the journalistic way...but quietly, stealthily, with all the rich interior organisation of a true work of art" (Observer)

This was David Mamet's 5th play. It was first staged in 1975, but he came up with this final version in 1976. A number of famous actors have played one of the plays only three characters, including Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, William H Macy, Dennis Franz and JT Walsh. It is set in a less-than-ideal part of an anonymous American city and is a brief glimpse into one day in the life of three minor criminals, none of whom are very bright and two (if not all three) are less than honest.

There is not much of a plot. They argue about doing a very minor job. They all often speak around their topics, instead of coming out and actually commit. They lie, get offended easily, curse, and interrupt each other often. This isn't for the faint of heart, easily irritated or fans of a well crafted plot. You can see Mamet's style and language here, even very early in his career. A movie version with Dustin Hoffman and Denis Franz was made in 1996, and is well regarded by Mamet fans.

As almost anyone who has read this far knows, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Glenngary Glen Ross in 1984. It was made into an excellent movie a few years later.

One of the best American plays.

Superb play, written by one of the masters of our time (though not the most important person on Broadway - George Lane takes that win in my estimate). Book in great condition. Something I'd recommend to anyone.

delivery was fine. sure glad, however, I didn't spend a lot of money to go see it.

One of the most important plays to come out of the American theater landscape in the latter part of the 20th Century - as it is said in the introduction: "the iambic pentameter of our time". Unfortunately, the amazing ebb and flow of the writing is littered with typos and misspellings. The character 'Teach' for example somehow becomes 'Retch'. If I was Mamet I would be suing the publisher for libel . . . or slander or both. I got the Kindle edition for about 9 bucks. Given the horrid production errors, it may have been worth 'two fiddy'.

Good overall!

The book itself was a little different, but it is still in great condition and even has notes from the playwright! Thank you!!
Three male characters, none of whom are likely candidates for admission to MENSA anytime soon. A customerless junkshop is the play's only set.
David Mamet exposes insights into the human condition through the pedestrian, though paradoxically engaging, dialogue of American Buffalo's characters. Men of limited intelligence and unlimited guilelessness.
A classic drama that cuts to the emotional core without extraneous fuss or muss. Minimalist entertainment.
