About The Book

From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Glengarry Glen Ross, here is a collection of thirty-two one act plays and short dramatic pieces that David Mamet himself considers to be some of the best writing he has ever done. In this single volume are all seven plays that make up Vermont Sketches, which Frank Rich of The New York Times has called ‘remarkable . . . as terrifying as a stranglehold.” Here also are the six plays that The Blue Hour, The Spanish Prisoner, and Goldberg Street comprise, and seventeen more short pieces from one of our greatest living playwrights.
