Day 215: Sam Shepard

A very late post today, I know. I did not have time to write earlier and I don’t really have the time now (trying to finish a chapter revision that needs to be sent out tomorrow). So, here briefly an excerpt of a Sam Shepard play that kept me smiling today:

ELLA: Why can’t you just cooperate?

EMMA: Because it’s deadly. It leads to dying.

ELLA: You’re not old enough to talk like that.



  1. What play is that from? I met Sam in a bar in Virginia once…. lovely.

  2. It’s from “Curse of the Starving Class.”
    What was lovely about him specifically? (I assume he is not as weird as his plays.)
