All have been produced in the avant-garde area of New York - Off-Off-broadway - and have drawn excited reviews from drama critics. "There is not the slightest doubt in my mind that Sam Shepard is the most important living American playwright," wrote Ross Wetzateon in The Village Voice, an opinion which was endorsed by Irving Wardle, drama correspondent of the London Times.' (Quote from inside front of wrappers blurb). ***Uncommon. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Bookseller Inventory # 3198
