about this book

Introduction by Richard Gilman. A representative collection of plays by Sam Shepard. Includes Pulitzer Prize-winning Buried Child; Curse of the Starving Class; The Tooth of Crime; La Turista; True West; Tongues and Savage Love.

"My particular focus is [the play] True West. Students love the archetypal connections to Cain and Abel, the contemporary commentary on Hollywood hustles, and the psychological aspects—Dual nature, addiction. In addition, I find Richard Gilman's introduction a helpful learning tool." —Prof. Wayne Cresser, Dean College
