Pullman is a GREAT choice for capturing late-act Shepard's dry snarl. Patti Smith's intro is worth the price of the whole book. That Everlastingest Eulogy/Elegy for her old flame and kindred spirit is a love letter to Letters and to her Sam himself. Gabriela DeCuir 's direction is spot-on as usual and Kelly Gildea's skillful "sheparding" of the whole project is certainly in evidence.
First Bill Pullman does a remarkable job with this piece. I listened to it twice one right after the other as with Shepard it is pealing an onion.
So many layers!
The last book or written collection published prior to Sheppard's death in July 2017 is so true to who he was as a man and a writer.
It also made his very first place make sense (Rock Garden)
Don't expect a neat bow at the end. It's left open as if there will be more. And to that I suggest we return to his writing before all of this happened
This had become Sam Shepard’s last book since his untimely death happened in 2017.
Bill Pullman does a tour de force, fleshing all the characters from a deep, passionate/dispassionate gravely voice.
