Kane, editor of David Mamet Review: A Casebook, has written an illuminating study of one of America's most recognizable voices (e.g., Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo). In his writing for both the stage and film, Mamet inspires heated discussion of ethics, morals, and our cultural concerns with power, the individual, and personal choices involving public and private acts. Kane explores the impact of Mamet's personal experience upon his aesthetic vision, clarifying the substantive Jewish content and methodology. Examining his entire oeuvre, she finds that Judaic thought and values are central to his artistic vision. With an extensive bibliography; recommended for all academic libraries and theater collections. (Index not seen.)ASusan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta
