From the Inside Flap
--------------------

What makes good drama? And why does drama matter in an age that is awash in information and entertainment?
With bracing directness and aphoristic grace, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Glengarry Glen Ross delivers a
thrillingly original treatise on his art.
To David Mamet, human beings are drama-creating animals who impose narrative structures on everything from today's

guide for any playwright or theatergoer that doubles as a trenchant work of moral and aesthetic philosophy.
