Dialogue. Life in Chicago in the 1920s provided a backdrop to showcase David Mamet’s fine writing in his novel titled, Chicago. Mamet uses dialogue to draw readers into that time and place. This is not always the dialogue Mamet would write in a screenplay, but he uses dialogue as a way to combine both character development and plot in a meandering way, requiring a reader to give oneself over to eavesdropping and to letting the plot take care of itself.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
