  • The Cabin: Reminiscence and Diversions

    • Published: December 1993
    In these mordant, elegant, and often disquieting essays, the internationally acclaimed dramatist creates a sort of autobiography by strobe light, one that is both mysterious and starkly revealing.The pieces in The Cabin are about places and things: the suburbs of Chicago, where as a boy David Mamet helplessly watched his stepfather terrorize his sister; New York City, where as a young man he had to eat his way through a mountain of fried matzoh to earn a night of sexual bliss. They are about guns, campaign buttons, and a cabin in the Vermont woods that stinks of wood smoke and kerosene -- and about their associations of pleasure, menace, and regret.The resulting volume may be compared to the plays that have made Mamet famous: it is finely crafted and deftly timed, and its precise language carries an enormous weight of feeling.

    In a slight, yet powerful examination on the roots of Anti-Semitism, critic, novelist, and playwright David Mamet uses the metaphor of the Wicked Son at the Passover seder to confront the insidious predilections of the Jewish culture.

Written with the same verbal brilliance as his play 'Glengarry Glen Ross.'
