Tooth of Crime by Mr Sam Shepard
Book DescriptionOne of the plays that first announced Sam Shepard as an original voice in American theater, "Tooth of Crime "is his thrillingly innovative rock drama, published here in a revised edition that is as fresh and provocative as the original was more than thirty years ago. An aging rock star in a world in which entertainment and street warfare go hand in hand, Hoss must defend himself against Crow, a newcomer who battles him for fame. Combining musical styles and intense dialogue in an unconventional musical-fantasy, "Tooth of Crime "riffs brilliantly on rising stars and fading legends, and rock lived and died for.
