La Turista [Rare Galleys of His First Full-Length - SHEPARD, Sam - 1968. 
Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis 1968 - The galley sheets of this early play by Shepard, his first two-act play. Laid in are the galleys of Elizabeth Hardwick's introduction, dated 1967; Hardwick had reviewed the play for the New York Review of Books. At the time Shepard wrote La Turista, he was a member of the counterculture rock band The Holy Modal Rounders, which had a cameo appearance in the film Easy Rider. Shepard may be most widely known these days as an actor: he was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as test pilot Chuck Yeager in The Right Stuff; but he won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1979 for Buried Child, and he has won eleven Obie awards and been nominated for two Tonys, for Buried Child and True West. He received the Gold Medal for Drama from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1992. Claspbound, printed on rectos only, front cover tanned and separating; rear cover has date and price and "DUPL NYPL." Front cover has the name of Paul Myers, curator of the Theatre Collection at the New York Public Library. Very good. A fragile and rare early state of this play by one of the most important playwrights of the latter half of the 20th century. The only copy of the proof we have seen. [Attributes: First Edition]
