In 1913, a young woman was found murdered in the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta. The investigation focused on the Jewish manager of the factory, Leo Frank, who was subsequently forced to stand trial for the crime he didn't commit and railroaded to a life sentence in prison. Shortly after being incarcerated, he was abducted from his cell and lynched in front of a gleeful mob.
In vividly re-imagining these horrifying events, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Mamet
inhabits the consciousness of the condemned man to create a novel whose every word seethes with anger over prejudice and injustice. The Old Religion is infused with the dynamic force and the remarkable ear that have made David Mamet
one of the most acclaimed voices of our time. It stands beside To Kill a Mockingbird
as a powerful exploration of justice, racism, and the "rush to judgment."
