This is an auction for A WHORE'S PROFESSION by David Mamet. review:

"This is the collected prose of one of America's most provocative playwrights. Mamet assesses himself as a writer and included in this volume are autobiographical vignettes from childhood and youth describing the gamut of human emotion. David Mamet is a controversial playwright as well as film director. He is the author of "American Buffalo", "Speed the Plow", "Glengarry Glen Ross" (for which he won the Pulitzer Prize), and most recently, "Oleanna". He has directed films such as "House of Games" and "Things Change"."

"FIVE STARS!!! The book is essentially a collection of notes and essays combining several of his earlier books into one volume. WRITING IN RESTAURANTS, SOME FREAKS, ON DIRECTING FILM, and THE CABIN are represented in their entirety. As always with Mamet, you get his opinions loudly, clearly, and entertainingly. He is a very percise writer and often nostalgiac, often humourous. His observations on Life in the Theatre are world-weary and wise. Whether you agree with him or not (and I often don't) you have to admit that the man is not ever afraid to speak his mind, and moreover, back up his thoughts. If it makes it's way back into print, A WHORE'S PROFESSION is an excellent addition to any Mamet fan's library."
