Wilson. David Mamet. Signed edition.

£12.00

Product description

336pp. 2000. Paperback with dust jacket. Very good condition. Signed by author on first page. 

A literary jeu d'esprit, a modern-day Tristram Shandy, a hilarious satire on false scholarship, Wilson is David Mamet at his best and most mischievous. When the internet - and the collective memory of the twenty-first century - crashes, the past is reassembled from the downloaded memories of Ginger, wife of ex-President Wilson. The transcripts take the reader on an intellectually breathtaking tour. In Mamet's baroque, fragmented world, nothing is certain except the certainty of academics. His customary bilious playfulness has created a trompe l'oeil for the mind's eye. In playing with the ideas of perception, understanding, accuracy, he dares to doubt them all.
