TRUE WEST Sam Shepard's Life, Work, and Times

by | Read by Jon Lindstrom

Biography & Memoir • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jon Lindstrom's deft yet rather formal approach and raspy tones are well suited to this account of the dramatic life of playwright and actor Sam Shepard, who wrote, among other iconic works, TRUE WEST. Greenfield describes Shepard's tumultuous life, along with carefully drawn descriptions of his times, especially the 1960s and 1970s, when he had relationships and collaborations with Patti Smith, Jessica Lange, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan. The author was given access to a number of these complex and creative artists. Insight and empathy are behind both the text and Lindstrom's skillful performance. Shepard wrote of love and hate, and played the role of loner, drifter, and stranger. But this sweeping biography finds still more within the man.
