Details

A world-class author . . .

David Mamet is one of the most important writers of our time. His breakout drama Glengarry Glen Ross was celebrated by audiences and at the Tonys alike. He is known by film-lovers as the writer behind The VerdictThe UntouchablesHannibal, and The Winslow Boy among many others. He has written lines performed by Al Pacino, Sean Connery, Kevin Costner, Sir Anthony Hopkins, and Paul Newman; he has won or been nominated for every major award in the business; and now, he takes his work from the stage and the screen, to the beauty of a handmade edition.

. . . meets a world-class illustrator.

Jackson Robinson is an illustrator of unmatched talent. He is among the most celebrated modern playing card designers, and is a star of the Kickstarter playing card world. He contributed original illustrations, which are interspersed throughout the stories.

This isn't a reprint of a classic work, but the first edition of an original work by a classic author. It's an exciting endeavor, and Mamet has written to meet the challenge. Famous for his dialogue, he now brings his mastery of the art to the dialogue of war. His three powerful stories of war are:

  • The Redwing, the story of a naval captain, who becomes a prisoner of war and endures the unimaginable. 
  • Notes on Plain Warfare, a story of preparedness, which teaches us to "save the last bullet for ourselves". 
  • The Handle and The Hold, the story of two former World War II pilots, who, during the Israeli War of Independence, steal a plane.
