Inhaltsangabe: From the intensely admired Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright-actor-musician-writer-ex-cowboy, comes a burst of pure storytelling: 20 swiftly told tales in the unmistakable voice of Sam Shepard.

The "package man," who sells everything from tenderloin to entrails, rambles on endlessly in a cow country bar -- the run-on conversation only a mask for the quiet desperation of his life. Two kids raise a wolf pup ordered from a mail-order catalog, then set it free on the railroad tracks. A young woman in South Dakota leaves her husband for good after he shoots a hole through her windshield, while her mother seems more concerned with the fact that her daughter has changed her name. A movie crew conducts its business beneath the baking Mexican sun, the locals oblivious to the Indian voladores (flying men) who sail above their heads in a magic ritual older than Cortez.

Terse, lyric, alive, these tales range in key from the sad to the hilarious. Some are rounded stories, some are miniatures, some are dialogues at once cryptic and mesmerizing, some are excerpts from an actor's diary. Together they present their author's singular vision in a voice as spare as an Arizona mesa and as quintessentially American as a forties jazz song. Cruising Paradise locates places where our culture is defined -- and at the same time brings us closer than we have yet been to a writer who has become synonymous with the recklessness, stoicism, and solitude of American manhood.

Review: Cruising Paradise contains 40 short stories by the renowned playwright and actor Sam Shepard. Exploring themes of solitude and loss, Shepard revisits the innocence of boyhood, traverses the confines of loneliness, gives accounts of the farcical exclusiveness of show business and offers an obstinate perspective on death. As in his stage and screen work, Shepard ties these musings to the wilds and open spaces of Mexico and the United States, utilizing the allure and tempo of the open road to bring his writing and self-actualization full circle.
