Edition: First Edition - 1999
The acclaimed dramatist who has created some of the most memorable and original films and plays of the past three decades tells a story unlike any other to flow from his prolific pen, introducing a remarkable heroine, Henrietta. A precocious pig pursuing the very American dream of attending Cambridge's most esteemed law school, Henrietta must overcome the pride and prejudices of others to prove her worth and follow the noble calling in her heart. Brought to life by Elizabeth Dahlie's heartwarming illustrations and suffused with local Cambridge color, David Mamet's delighful fable of virtue and integrity triumphant is subtle, playful, and eccentric, tinged with satire and told with flair.
