Letters between the director and playwright depict the development of their friendship and collaboration on theater pieces

From Publishers Weekly:

Daniels, who teaches at Kent State, here collects everything you ever wanted to know (and more) about three collaborations between playwright Shepard and director Chaikin. The slim volume--featuring letters between the two, drafts of plays and Daniels's commentary--benefits from an academic's inclusiveness and a cultist's obsessiveness, yet the whole, surprisingly, exceeds the sum of its parts. The material reveals the plays in question ( Tongues ; Savage/Love ; The War in Heaven ) as collaborative in the best sense: we observe the excitement of dramatist and performers sharing and merging respective influences. However, in limiting himself to written documents, Daniels unfairly, if unintentionally, privileges Shepard; only audiotapes and/or videotapes of performances could fully represent Chaikin's contributions.
