About the Book

people here
have become
the people
they're pretending to be.
'Sam Shepard's language is sparse and crystal clear. His words appear modest, but they have huge scope.'
Wim Wenders

This volume is the first collection of Sam Shepard's autobiographical fiction and poetry.
It inspired the award-winning film, Paris, Texas.

'Sam Shepard is the greatest U.S. playwright of his generation. Since 1964 he has mapped out a huge mythic territory...like Whitman, his is vast and contains multitudes, his plays soar over the empty tracts of the Midwest, celebrate the space, energy and naive optimism of the new-found lands.' Time Out
