Hitchens on Mamet

By posted at 7:56 pm on June 19, 2011 4

It almost sounds too terrifying to be true. Your book is reviewed by Christopher Hitchens in the New York Times Book Review and he opens with: “This is an extraordinarily irritating book” (and it gets worse from there, and deservedly so). It happened to David Mamet and his new book The Secret Knowledge.

    Perhaps Mamet is writing some sly parody of right-winger thinking and we’re just not smart enough to get the joke. That’s what I’d like to believe.

    That’s the thing about good parodies of crazy: You can’t tell them from the original. I kind of hope you’re right, Bat of Moon.

    Makes me grateful to be invisible.

    No, Mamet is a scary person. All of his non-fiction is deeply disturbing.
