I just ordered David Mamet’s new book, The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture, about his path to conservatism. The Left can have all the Alec Baldwin’s, Sean Penn’s and Susan Sarandon’s they want. None of them can carry Mamet’s pencil.
Here is Mamet’s seminal Village Voice article from two years ago, “Why I Am No Longer Brain-Dead Liberal.”
And here is Andrew Ferguson’s excellent writeup in the Weekly Standard.
Update: Here is a John Podhertz column about Mamet. The story at the end is priceless.
Update 2: And here is a long transcript of Mamet’s interview on the Hugh Hewitt show.
