Mamet, David. LAKEBOAT. New York City, NY: Grove Press, 1981. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 111 pages. Fine.

The author's seventh play. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by David Mamet. Without DJ, as issued. David Mamet is the heir of Arthur Miller as the spokesman in the theatre for the "common man", ekeing out a precarious living and trying to live a life of dignity and pride in the face of often overwhelming odds. He exposes the lie to the so-called "American Dream" with power and conviction. If that sounds portentous, one must also be reminded that Mamet is one of our funniest writers without meaning to be funny in the way entertainers are. A "must-have" title for David Mamet collectors. This edition has been out-of-print for more than twenty-five years and is now collectible. Copies are increasingly difficult to find in this fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the Drama Critic's Circle Award and the Obie Award. One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID MAMET TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
