    It is what I call crunch time-- the last two weeks of the year and attempting to wrap up loose ends in reading before the calendar turns a page. At last count I have five books to go and I hope I get to all five, but it will be a challenge. Before getting to those last five, I decided to get a jump start on a challenge I created for myself for next year. In addition to my Pulitzer challenge, I have decided to 'read Chicago' in 2018, selecting ten books across all genres for this challenge. These [...]

    Glengarry Glen Ross: a play‬, David Mamet Glengarry Glen Ross is a play by David Mamet that won the Pulitzer Prize in 1984. The play shows parts of two days in the lives of four desperate Chicago real estate agents who are prepared to engage in any number of unethical, illegal acts—from lies and flattery to bribery, threats, intimidation and burglary—to sell undesirable real estate to unwitting prospective buyers. It is based on Mamet's experience having previously worked in a similar offi [...]

    I absolutely loved this play (anyone ever heard the song Wall Street Shuffle by 10cc? It reminded me of that) and it's a very character-driven, people-based story that highlights modern society at its most wealthy yet ruthless. Glengarry Glen Ross is amazing, I can't wait to buy the film and I think it would be great to see it performed live. :)

    Let me start by being perfectly clear: I'm not a fan of David Mamet. Read Oleanna: did not care for it. Read his view on actors/acting/women: completely disagree with him. But there is no denying that he is iconic in post-Cold War American Theatre. And up until now, I had not had any incentive to pick up this 1984 Pulitzer Prize winner coveted by almost every male colleague I have ever worked with in theatre. So I gave him one last shot. And this was the final nail in the Mamet coffin for me. Th [...]

    FINAL RATING: 3.5 OUT OF 5 STARSI remember in an English class I was attending a couple years ago, the topic of Mamet suddenly came up and my teacher wanted each and every one of us to read a scene from American Buffalo. When we were done, my professor wanted us to tell him what we analyzed from the piece of writing. A girl sitting next to me raised her hand and said "I find his situations realistic yet the dialogue surreal and disjointed."To this day, that response still sticks with me, even th [...]

    دیوید ممت به این شهره است که در دیالوگ های خود توجه زیادی روی جزئیات معطوف می کند. تک تک شخصیت های نمایشنامه گلن‌گری گلن راس به روش مخصوص خود صحبت می کنند. جملات اغلب نیمه تمام می مانند، گرامر و دستور زبانی که به کار می برند معمولا اشتباه است و مشخص است که به صورت آنی و سریع تفکر [...]

    Ο Ντέιβιντ Μάμετ είναι ένας πάρα πολύ γνωστός και καλός σεναριογράφος και σκηνοθέτης, καθώς φυσικά και θεατρικός συγγραφέας. Δεν χρειάζεται να αραδιάσω εδώ τίτλους ταινιών τις οποίες έχει σκηνοθετήσει ή οι οποίες βασίζονται σε θεατρικά έργα ή σενάρια που έχει γράψει. Έχω [...]

    Honestly, I thought I'd hate this play. Then I saw it with Liev Schreiber and Alan Alda and was engrossed. This is an incredibly hard play to pull off on stage (there's something about Mamet's stylized dialogue that requires truly talented actors). Probably one of the ten best productions I've ever seen. I mention the staged version because you really get a clear sense of the "feel" of this play from reading it. I can't say it's for everyone; the language is strong and it's decidedly, well, male [...]

    Who am I to argue with a Pulitzer Prize winner? But, wow, the amount of repetition and extraneous verbiage is surprising. Some of it creates beats and perhaps captures the reality of speech. Still, that seems way overdone. And why do it? Aside from that Mamet is great at showing character via dialogue. And the most famous scene from the movie is not even in the play.

    Glengarry Glen Ross is a play by David Mamet that has won accolades across the board, been featured in the National Theatre of London, been on Broadway, and made into a movie (starring Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey - I mean holy heavens Batman that is some serious casting).The action takes place over two days in two settings: a Chinese restaurant and a real estate office. The characters are real estate agents from Chicago trying to sell swampland in Fl [...]

    I once heard "Glengarry Glen Ross" described as the other great American play about salesmen. In truth there are many great American plays that explore the capricious game of selling that is the soul of Capitalism. But this is, indeed, in the top two. I have always liked it more than "Death of a Salesman" but I know I'm in the minority on that and no one can deny Miller's Willy Loman. This is Mamet at the absolute peak of his powers. It doesn't read like a play so much as a transcript typed up f [...]

    این که چرا دیوید مامت نمایشنامه نویس "خوبی" است و چرا گلن گری گلن راس نمایشنامه ای "خوب" برایم قابل درک نیست. گاهی آدم کتابی می خواند که دوستش ندارد اما می تواند درک کند که عده ای آن را دوست داشته باشند.(صرفا با سلیقه ات جور در نمی آید)نمی دانم؛شاید من آن طور که باید به کتاب نگاه نک [...]

    I decided to listen to this because it was short, and because I've never seen Glengarry Glen Ross, and it's one of those things in the cultural zeitgeist with which I should be familiar.But it turns out that Glengarry Glen Ross is about (white) men talking about making money, which is basically the Venn diagram of things about which I do not care.So . . . this is a bunch of men talking to each other about selling things, and how much they want to do that, and how much they love it when it's goin [...]

    I always enjoy the typical Mamet-speak, be it in his films or in his plays. The sardonic, street-smart dialogues his characters speak are so effective on ears that they seem to deny the fact that a film should need a plot. The dialogues, like a structured symphony, carry the reader/viewer from one situation to another, with the plot slowly revealing itself, with the true nature of the characters coming out through their actions as they con one another, and we don't realize till the very end that [...]

    This is a sort-of play that you have to be in a particular mood to fully appreciate. It is about the inner-depths of the sales-world profession and as dark a modern comedy that one can think of. I think it is funny, but it is not for the faint of heart. Also, this play must set the record for most profanity per minute in any medium.

    Bullshit! It's all about thee you fucking listening to me? All I'm sayingw wait a secondudy THE DIALOGUE. What? Fuck stage directions.

    ROMA You think you're queer? I'm going to tell you something: we're all queer. You think that you're a thief? So what? You get befuddled by a middle-class morality? Get shut of it. Shut it out. You cheated on your wife? You did it, live with it. (pause) You fuck little girls, so be it. There's an absolute morality? May be. And then what? If you think there is, then be that thing. Bad people go to hell? I don't think so. If you think that, act that way. A hell exists on earth? Yes. I won't live i [...]

    It was hard for me to fully envision the characters by just reading it in play form, I'd like to see how the live play would interpret them. Even though the characters were a little gappy for me, I still thought they were great, and the story was fast paced and engaging. Looking forward to watching the movie.

    Reread this recently. The only reason I don't give this five stars is because this is the one exception I can think of where the movie (also written by Mamet) is better than the book, though the immorality of just about everyone involved is much more stark in the original version. A must for anyone who has ever tried to sell anything, dispelling myths and revealing the truths behind the salesman mentality no one brings up: the false friendships among co-workers, the betrayals, the racism, the hy [...]

    The dedication is to Harold Pinter - the best thing Pinter did, and there are some fantastic plays in there, is encourage this guy. Glengarry Glen Ross reads like Pinter rewritten (almost entirely) by George V Higgins and William Gaddis with an Arthur Miller polish. A masterwork and then some. The cadence, the tight, dizzying jazz of the vacillating (in and out of personas) exchanges, the funny, tautological, uncanny idiomatic ferocity and whip-smart bellicosity of it

    It's kind of got too much man and their misguided ideals. If it's a man's world, it's pretty petty and terribly macho.

    Written between American Buffalo and Speed The Plow, Glengarry is yet another withering look at men - this time, real estate hustlers - going about the business of the shady craft. Unlike the movie, the play focusses on the a minor office theft that highlights the moral bankruptcy of their universe.

    tl;dr capitalism turns men into dicksI feel I might have gotten this more if I actually understood how real estate works!

    While it has been compered with Death Of A Salesman, the play itself reflects masculinity and manly survival in the man cage. Women are out of borders of this area. Within gender centered reading you can see how patriarchy rebuild itself as every character tries to be a man or the man in order to gain economical power and status.

    I've really just started reading plays. I've heard of Mamet, but I couldn't have named anything by him. In truth (and this is another sad example of the "Danger Zone" played out in real life), I don't think I ever even knew he was American. I would have guessed French playwright or philosopher.Danger Zone:I was encouraged to read this by a friend. (Isn't it good to have friends like that?) And then we went out and discussed it. But, he asked if I had ever read "Death of a Salesman." I told him I [...]
