A contemporary classic that became a celebrated film, this 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winner examines a group of cutthroat Chicago real estate agents who will do anything to close the deal. With a gift for natural dialogue and a realistic portrayal of these men’s struggles, Mamet creates “crackling tension...ferocious comedy and drama” (New York Times).
