His dialogue--abrasive, rhythmic--illuminates a modern aesthetic evocative of Samuel Beckett. His plots--surprising, comic, topical--have evoked comparisons to masters from Alfred Hitchcock to Arthur Miller. Here are two screenplays demonstrating the astounding range of Mamets talents.

The Spanish Prisoner, a neo-noir thriller about a research-and-development cog hoodwinked out of his own brilliant discovery, demonstrates Mamets incomparable use of character in a dizzying tale of twists and mistaken identity. The Winslow Boy, Mamets revisitation of Terence Rattigans classic 1946 play, tells of a thirteen-year-old boy accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order and the tug of war for truth that ensues between his middle-class family and the Royal Navy.

Crackling with wit, intelligent and surprising, The Spanish Prisoner and The Winslow Boy celebrate Mamets unique genius and our eternal fascination with the extraordinary predicaments of the common man. From the Trade Paperback edition.
