After rewatching “Wag the Dog,” recently, my friend Marty insisted that I read some of David Mamet’s other works, because I hadn’t.

What I liked: The rapid-fire dialogue.
What I didn’t like: The rapid-fire dialogue, sometimes. It’s possible to rush through this play (like I did), but to fully digest it, I’d have to read it again more slowly.
What I learned: I need to read more slowly.
Unresolved question: I didn’t pick up on the sexual assault mentioned in the second half of the book… did I miss something?
