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

In November 30, 1993, David Mamet published a book called The Cabin. The Cabin was written as an autobiography of himself. Mamet's sometimes extremist opinions give the stories full of life, and the stories are recommended to anyone who likes to think about the little things in life. This book takes place in two different cities. First it started out in the suburbs of Chicago where as a boy David Mamet would watch his father beat up his sister. Then as he became a young man, David moved to New York City, where he had to eat his way through a mountain of fried matzo ball in order to get one night of sexual bliss. The cabin was located in the woods of Vermont. The cabin stinks of wood smoke, kerosene and their associations of pleasure and regret. Overall, I didn¿t enjoy this book because it was too long. Also, this book was very boring, it didn¿t keep me interested. I couldn¿t relate to the author at all. Those are few reasons on why I don¿t like this book. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
