Motel Chronicles

Motel Chronicles by Sam Shepard. 1982 City Lights, presumed first edition paperback. Cover bent at the corner and some shelf wear, otherwise book seems unread.  Photos by Johnny Dark. Shepard relays scenes from his own life, some of which inspired the movie Paris-Texas.

"I didn't want to scare anyone so I stopped grinning after that. I only did it in private. Pretty soon even that faded. I returned to my empty face."
