Overview

Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet

Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real esate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all. This masterpiece of American drama is now a major motion picture starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Alex Baldwain, Jonathan Pryce, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey.

This was an excellent play. I have been wanting to read something by David Mamet for a long time and this is the first play of his that I have seen or read. His dialogue was really great and Glengarry Glen Ross was a great short read.

Glengarry Glenross is an incredible piece of modern literature, and arguably one of the greatest plays of the last thirty years. Focusing on the trials and tribulations of a group of hard-luck real estate hustlers, Mamet fires nonstop volleys of blistering dialogue in every line. The central themes are masculinity (price, competitiveness and bravado) and emasculation (shame, fear and hoplessness). I also highly recommend the movie, which features perhaps the greatest assembled cast of the last twenty years - every actor a heavyweight.

When I first read the book Glengarry Glen Ross, it seemed to be a bit boring and rather hazy to understand as far as the them is concerned. But with the second reading, things startd to get clarified. And in the third time i thoroughly enjoyed the play entirely. And that's where David Mamet is successful. Through the mist of thoughts and manipulation of speeches, he has actually played with the minds of the readers very nicely. it's really amazing how he threads his thoughts to develop his plot.
