What was your first job in New York?  
Cutting out pages of David Mamet's Oleanna from a book and scotch-taping them to blank printer paper for St. Martin's.  

-John Hodgman in NY Magazine

Why, exactly?

I loooooove Oleanna. It started my "Omg I'm now gonna read everything this guy has ever written" binge. I'm now one of maybe 5 people in the world who's read Revenge of the Space Pandas, although I drew the line at his poetry.

I'm guessing Hodgman was in production at St Martin's, making a mock-up of the pre-production book. (Correct me if I'm wrong, book publishing types.)

I love Mamet myself - recently went to the "Glengarry Glen Ross" revival on Broadway.

I keep meaning to go to one of these. Wanted to go to the one a few years back with Liev Schreiber as Roma, too. Someday!
