A great production of a great play.

If you don't know Sam Shepard this is the perfect entry point. A funny, dark, absurd yet utterly believable tale of two brothers at war with each other. Big questions of what is America and what is art are derided and disected in a brilliant tour de force of dramatic writing.

Engaging!

I kept laughing because the book is funny and the audio book does a great job in pulling you in the story as if you were really there.
