User Review  - Kathi - Goodreads

I have always like Mr. Shephard's roles in cinema but I really didn't know he was such a prolific playwright. Once I saw "Fool for Love" with him and was prompted to know more about his other plays. I wish I could see some of the plays in this book but I doubt I ever will. They are awesome! Read full review
