Notes

Superb presentation copy inscribed to David Mamet by the author on the title page, "for David, with all good wishes, Sam Beckett". This copy, which is a reprint of the second edition, also has Mamet's card laid in, inscribed "Greetings and love from Copenhagen. September 1977, D.M." This book first came to market after Mamet's divorce from his first wife the actress Lindsay Crouse in 1990, and a subsequent library sale through Strand, New York. This card was inscribed, presumably to her, in the year their married, and evidently found its way back into this copy. This is an excellent theatrical association for Beckett, and notably early in Mamet's career. The Pulitzer Prize winning author of Lakeboat (1970) said in 1977, "Beckett and Pinter - of course I'm influenced by them". Buning adds, "Mamet is influenced by Beckett, because, as it were, he can't help it".
