Not Sam Shepard at His Best
10 August 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
First off, I absolutely love Sam Shepard, but for some reason the plays in this anthology just seemed lacking to me. I thoroughly enjoyed Fool for Love and Geography of a Horse Dreamer, but the others just weren't Mr. Shepard at his best. I would recommend his True West anthology instead of this one. However, if you are a hardcore fan of him, these plays are at least worth the read.
