The Cryptogram by David MametPosted: October 16, 2012 Filed under: Books, Theater / Drama | Tags: Books, David Mamet, English, Theater Leave a comment
Can't say I truly understood what this book was about. I didn't read it as child's coming of age or betrayal related to family breakup, as some reviews claimed.
It seems I am falling out of grace with Mamet – second play in a row that I don't like much. Frankly, Keep Your Pantheon one was funnier and easier to dig.
I reckon I should stop reading his drama and start hitting the theater more often – sad no Mamet available in Moscow though.
Or audio books. Downloaded Speed the Plow for Kindle – will see how it goes.
P.S. Am reading Bambi vs. Godzilla in parallel – also, not an easy read, though it's non-fiction – but it has it's moments, I guess.
