True West is another play by Sam Shepard. And I really enjoyed this one, too!
This is the story of two brothers, one an education, ivy-league writer and one a drifter, thief.
They haven't seen each other in a while and the two come together at their mother's home while mom is visiting Alaska.
One of the reviewers on goodreads.com said that the whole play was character development and that is totally true.
Great play, powerful, nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1983. And until right now I didn't know "nominated" meant actually won! So now I have read two Pulitzer Prize Winning Dramas. And I liked them!
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
