The author's sixth collection of essays. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents David Mamet's "Jafsie And John Henry". The poet of the working class as essayist. In this diverse collection, the writer turns his attention to subjects ranging from houses to Hollywood producers. Shares his reflections on the nature of creativity and the challenges and rewards of aging. David Mamet has also mined his "Jewishness" with increasing interest and genuine pathos. An absolute "must-have" title for David Mamet collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the Drama Critic's Circle Award and the Obie Award. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID MAMET TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0684841207. $20.00
