Rezensionen
"Of the many provocative critical approaches to Sam Shepard, Dr. McGhee's tripping of the dark fantasic in this study as a way into the playwright's almost hallucinatory transactions seems particularly illuminating and persuasive for an appreciation of him as an American master in theater and literature". (Edward T. Jones, York College of Pennsylvania)
"After reading this study, I appreciate Shepard's writing more fully. McGhee provides access to the work of this complex, perplexing, fascinating playwright. Highly usable for the director and actor". (Briant Hamor Lee, Bowling Green State University)
