From one of our most acclaimed and inimitable writers: a collection of tales set mainly in the fertile imaginative landscape of the West, written with the terse lyricism, cinematic detail, and wry humor that have become Sam Shepard’s trademarks. A man traveling down Highway 90 West gets trapped alone overnight inside a Cracker Barrel restaurant, where he is tormented by an endless loop of Shania Twain songs on the overhead sound system . . . A wandering actor returns to his hometown against his better instincts and runs into an old friend, who recounts their teenage days of stealing cars, buying Benzedrine, and sleeping with whores in Tijuana . . . A Minnesota family travels south for a winter vacation but, being caught up in the ordinary tyrannies of family life, remains oblivious to the beauty of the Yucatán peninsula . . . A solitary horse rancher muses on Sitting Bull and Beckett amid the stuff that inhabits his kitchen . . . These are tales at once magisterial and spare, elegant and violent, personal and all-encompassing. Comprised of narratives, lyrics, and dialogues, Day out of Days is a work of stunning vision and clarity imbued with the vivid reverberations of myth—Shepard at his flinty-eyed, unwavering best.
