I listened to an audio dramatization and loved hearing Richard Dreyfus and "Rossi" from Criminal Minds. It was an interesting snippet of cutthroat business in New York. There was so much profanity which was harsh to listen to though was definitely accurate for the situations. ( )

I can see why some people love it, but this is a rare case where the movie was better. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802130917, Paperback)

Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet’s scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action—where closing a sale can mean a brand new Cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all. This masterpiece of American drama is now a major motion picture starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Alec Baldwin, Jonathan Pryce, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey.
