from the manufacturer

The final work from the Pulitzer Prizewinning writer, actor, and musician, drawn from his transformative last days In searing, beautiful prose, Sam Shepards extraordinary narrative leaps off the page with its immediacy and power. It tells in a brilliant braid of voices the story of an unnamed narrator who traces, before our rapt eyes, his memories of work, adventure, and travel as he undergoes medical tests and treatments for a condition that is rendering him more and more dependent on the loved ones who are caring for him. The narrators memories and preoccupations often echo those of our current momentfor here are stories of immigration and community, inclusion and exclusion, suspicion and trust. But at the books core, and his, is familyhis relationships with those he loved, and with the natural world around him. Vivid, haunting, and deeply moving, Spy of the First Person takes us from the sculpted gardens of a renowned clinic in Arizona to the blue waters surrounding Alcatraz, from a New Mexico border town to a condemned building on New York Citys Avenue C. It is an unflinching expression of the vulnerabilities that makes us humanand an unbound celebration of family and life.
