Cruising Paradise. Tales by Sam Shepard

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1996. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher's black cloth over black paper-covered boards, spine stamped in silver, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

"I had a definite sense of somehow being a passenger in an evil vehicle cruising through Paradise." First edition of the iconic downtown playwright’s 1996 prose collection, signed by Shepard on the half-title. While works of fiction, the vivid stories, dialogues, journal entries, and recollections gathered here are largely autobiographical in nature. Exploring the universality of solitude and loss while offering insight into Shepard’s childhood and adult life, the book stands as an unofficial companion to his plays, which often blend elements of his personal experience and pop culture. Stamp of the Signature Theater Company, which dedicated their '96-'97 fall-winter season to Shepard’s plays, to the half-title next to his signature. A thank you letter from the company’s board of directors and staff to its subscribers laid in. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #4604
