Overview

David Mamet is one of America’s most celebrated playwrights. The author of plays, screenplays, poetry, essays, and children’s books, he has won many awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Glengarry Glen Ross.

The Obie award-winning Sexual Perversity in Chicago is about two office workers, Danny and Bernie, on the make in the swinging singles scene of the early 1970s. Danny meets Deborah in a library and soon they are not only lovers but roommates, and their story quickly evolves into a modern romance in all its sticky details.

The Duck Variations is a dialogue between two old men sitting on a park bench. The conversation turns to the mating habits of ducks, but soon begins to reveal their feelings about natural law, friendship, and death. New York magazine has called The Duck Variations “a gorgeously written, wonderfully observant piece whose timing and atmosphere are close to flawless.”

    Good laugh!!

    I liked the book because of its portrayal of two average men just living out there lives normally and letting everyone know what goes on in our heads. My favorite character is Bernie he is always talking dirty and making up funny stories to tell his buddy Danny. They use really dirty language in the book which adds to the comedy of it all. Not recommended to those who do not like cursing in there books. Fun to read and made me laugh at the real life situations and how they author had the characters deal with them.
