"Since Shepard has said that he is not interested in writing his memoirs, this collection of letters may be the only primary written record of the esteemed playwright's life." * Library Journal * "A beautiful volume. . . . The book circles around family life, the challenges of writing and aging, the search for inspiration." * Los Angeles Magazine * "It's fascinating to read about folks who inspire creative genius otherwise known as muses...Two Prospectors offers the reader nearly four decades of letters, taped conversations, and photos shared between Shepard and Dark, resulting in a fascinating study of friendship and artistic pursuit." * Cowboys and Indians * "The volume has the feel of an earlier age. . . . The correspondence . . . is rich with allusions to Kerouac and Beckett. . . . A bright pathway directly into the hearts and minds of two compelling men." * Kirkus Reviews *
