Another collection of Vignettes around remembrances of his life. Some as stories and others as poems. When he is describing the SW US or Mexico his writing is sharp and vivid. Other times not so much. Not his best but if you like Shepard it will do.

Well acted audio play, very tense, but not without a few chuckles.

August 2019 (Audible Original -- from June maybe?);

This took three different starts to finish, and only finished this time because I was bound and determined not to turn it off. I didn't love anything about these two characters or their story. This is definitely one I'd like to return to Audible for something better.

wanderlustlover | 10 muuta kirja-arvostelua | Dec 27, 2022 |
نمایشنامه‌ی معمولی‌ای بود و نمونه‌ای بود از نمایشنامه‌های آمریکایی قرن بیستم که سردمدارشون آرتور میلر و تنسی ویلیامز هستن... اما جالبه که اون موقع چقدر آمریکایی‌ها از خانواده عاصی بودن و چقدر نمایشنامه با موضوع مشکلات درون خانواده دارند
