Sexual Perversity in Chicago


David Mamet

Published by Samuel French Inc

2 Male 2 Female

Sexual Perversity . . . takes funny and painful digs at the fantasies and distances of the contemporary sexual game said the New York Times

It is about a couple of months in the lives of four young people Bernie and Joan, seemingly sexually knowledgeable but who really don't know the score, and Danny and Deborah, quieter and less assertive

Yet it is the latter two who come together, if only briefly. Their courtship is funny and fretful, but it is they not Bernie and Joan who make love. In the end Deborah is back rooming with Joan and Danny is back girl watching with Bernie

"Mamet has the most acute ear for dialogue of any American writer since J.D. Salinger" ~ Village Voice

"Marvelously observant. . . . A glittering mosaic of tiny, deadly muzzle flashes from the war between men and women among the filing cabinets and single bars" ~ N.Y. Times
