David Mamet's play Glengarry Glen Ross won a Pulitzer Prize, and his screenplays for The Verdict and Wag the Dog were nominated for Academy Awards.
On honor of Veteran's Day, Big Think is featuring an excerpt from Mamet's latest book, a collection of novellas entitled Three War Stories, in which Mamet explores redemption and forgiveness in the context of conflict. In The Redwing, excerpted today, a 19th Century Secret Service naval officer recounts his own transformations during the course of his service and imprisonment.
Big Think's Austin Allen will be interviewing Mamet and we invite you to read the excerpt, buy the book, and submit your questions for Austin's consideration in the interview. To do that, enter your questions in the comment section of the post here.
