Mamet, David. REUNION & DARK PONY: TWO PLAYS. New York City, NY: Grove Weidenfeld, 1990. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 53 pages. Fine. .

The author's thirteenth collection of plays. Two of David Mamet's finest achievements. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a double bill and as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by David Mamet. Without DJ, as issued. Presents David Mamet's "Reunion & Dark Pony: Two Plays". The poet of the working class. David Mamet was 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 exposed the lie to the so-called "American Dream" with power and conviction. If that sounds portentous, one must also be reminded that Mamet was, until his recent conversion, one of our funniest writers without meaning to be funny in the way entertainers are. "Odd, original, beautifully constructed" (Richard Eder Front Cover Blurb). 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 Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a 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 080215171X. $20.00
