About this Item

152 pages. SIGNED by the author on the title page. A very faint hint of storage rubbing to dust jacket, otherwise very fine. "Filled with anecdotes, wry jokes, reminiscences, and dozens of Mamet's own photographs, this freewheeling memoir glints with the deadpan humor of a sly old farmer and the sure touch of a great playwright: tart, funny, thoughtful, and filled with affection for the deep woods and steep hills of Vermont." The book appears unread and looks New. Collectible. Protected in a new Mylar cover.; 8vo - over 7 3/4" - 9 3/4; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 00365

About this title

Synopsis:

Compared to some of its New England neighbors, Vermont has seemed to long-time resident David Mamet a place of intrinsic energy and progressiveness, love and commonality. It has lived up to the old story that settlers came up the Connecticut River and turned right to get to New Hampshire and left to get to Vermont. Is Vermont's tradition of live and let live an accident of geography, the happy by-product of 200 years of national neglect, an emanation of its Scots-Irish regional character? Exploring the ways in which his decades in Vermont have shaped his character and his work, Mamet examines each of these strands and how the state's free-thinking tradition can survive in an age of increasing conglomeration. The result is a highly personal and compelling portrait of a truly unique place.
