Beschreibung

In eighteen stories unlike any in our contemporary literature, Sam Shepard explores the vast and rugged American West with the same parched intensity that has made him "the great playwright of his generation" (The New York Times). A boy watches a "remedy man" tame a wild stallion, a contest that mirrors his own struggle with his father. A woman driving her mother's ashes across the country has a strangely transcendent run-in with an injured hawk. Two aging widowers, in Stetsons and bolo ties, together make a daily pilgrimage to the local Denny's, only to be divided by the attentions of their favorite waitress. Peering unblinkingly into the chasms that separate fathers and sons, husbands and wives, friends and strangers, these powerful tales bear the unmistakable signature of an American master.

Pressestimmen

"Extraordinary by any measure. . . . With this collection [Shepard] becomes a storyteller in the purest sense." -The New York Times Book Review "Devastatingly artful. . . . Brutal and satisfying. . . . In their careful craft and mysterious revelations, the best stories in Great Dream of Heaven recall . . . Chekhov." -Minneapolis Star Tribune "Strong emotions . . . make a Sam Shepard story as familiar as an old leather saddle. . . . Shepard's terse, lyrical style excels. . . . There's something broadly American . . . about the frustrations his characters feel." -San Francisco Chronicle "Shocking. . . . Often funny. . . . Shepard's writing is consistently excellent." -Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "His playwriting skills . . . make his fiction shimmer with a brutal clarity." -Los Angeles Times Book Review
