Sam Shepard and Johnny Dark met in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and, despite leading very different lives, have remained close friends ever since. Shepard became a Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright (Buried Child) and an Academy Award®–nominated actor (The Right Stuff), while Dark was a homebody with a penchant for letter writing and photography, supporting himself with odd jobs — from dogcatcher to deli worker. Through the decades, they stayed bonded by family ties. Dark married an older woman named Scarlett; Shepard married her daughter. The two couples lived together for years until Shepard broke away for a relationship with Jessica Lange in 1982, leaving Johnny to help raise Shepard’s first son. Nevertheless, he and Dark continued writing to each other, amassing hundreds of letters.
