Writing in Restaurants by David Mamet
Rate this book
Clear rating
Meh. If the best thing about David Mamet is his dialogue and his cursing, this book offers neither. The essays on pool tables and the Oscars are worthwhile, but dated. Most of the other clips are a bit too heady about "the theater."

My first read from Zadie Smith -- Swing Time -- really delivered! This solid first-person story follows an unnamed narrator from 1980s childhood through to her stunted, modern adulthood. The narrator -- largely a blank slate -- spends her most of her ...more
