Three War Stories

David Mamet

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Spanning centuries and continents, Mamet uses war and its players to explore, among other themes, redemption and forgiveness as they unfold in the context of conflict in the form of three novellas.

In The Redwing, the first of the three novellas, a 19th Century Secret Service naval officer turned prisoner, then novelist and finally memoirist recounts his own transformations during the course of his service and imprisonment.

The protagonist in Notes on Plain Warfare examines religion through the prism of the American Indian wars. Finally, The Handle and the Hold is a vivid, dialogue-driven tale of two ex-military men who steal a plane in the month before the Israeli War of Independence.

Finely wrought, Mamet eloquently depicts the psychological brutality conflict raises in the landscape of the mind.

Customer Reviews

Preachy, smug, undramatic.

The old Mamet who wrote smart, piercing drama has been replaced by a droning-on, self-satisfied homespun philosopher who is like a tiresome guest at a cocktail party who just won't stop talking about something uninteresting. This trio of stories is not worth reading even for its obtuseness; they're quite simply dreadfully boring.
