Mamet, David. THE OLD RELIGION. New York City, NY: Free Press, 1997. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 194 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. One of the most prolific and consistently engrossing writers alive, David Mamet has mined his "Jewishness" with increasing interest and genuine pathos. "Only David Mamet could take us on this mesmerizing journey inside the mind of a Southern Jew falsely accused of murder and produce a masterpiece of imaginative philosophy, religion, and psychology. This is one journey you will never forget" (Alan Dershowitz). A "must-have" title for David Mamet collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Many copies online are "hurt", faded or remainder-marked. 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.
