Cruising Paradise is a lean muscular book. The writing is sometimes brutal and always powerful. His writing is reminiscent of Hemingway and Jim Harrison, but with a Southwestern flair and a stronger sense of immediacy. It is not the plots or so much the characters in the story that drive the book, but the sense of movement and restlessness in the stories peppered with stoicism that make his stories so interesting. His stories seem to be autobiographical, even those he clearly passes off as fiction.

Cruising Paradise is a book that locates places where our culture is defined - and at the same time brings us closer than we have yet been to a writer who has become synonymous with the recklessness, stoicism, and solitude of American manhood. Sam Shepard - playwright, actor, ex-rock musician and real-life cowboy - has spent a great deal of time in his car. He hits the road to think, to write, to escape, to scope out the American landscape and - whenever possible - to avoid flying, which he hates. So it should come as no surprise that Shepard also burns up a lot of rubber in 'Cruising Paradise,' his quirky, moving, drolly funny and always surprising collection of short tales.
