A new collection of short stories by admired playwright and actor Sam Shepard.
My introduction to Sam Shepard was first through The Right Stuff and then Herbert Ross' film Steel Magnolias (director of Footloose), which the women in my family played on what seemed to be some Groundhog Day-esque loop in my childhood. It was only in college while taking a theater class did I discover Shepard was a respected playwright as well.
Day Out of Days is comprised of dozens and dozens of micro stories ranging from a half a page to ten, and everywhere in between. There's even a few narrative poems found in the 281 pages. All deal essentially with the American West.
So, think the West as seen through a Beckettian lens.
