Tennessee Williams

America’s playwright

You cannot read these letters without hearing Tennessee speaking them.

—Edward Albee

There may never be a better biography of Tennessee Williams than the one he inadvertently wrote in his letters.

—David Cuthbert, The Times-Picayune

These letters present a self-portrait of a brave man, harassed by his demons, yet always – in those days, with riveting power – trying to bend them to his artistic will.

—Richard Schickel, The New York Times Book Review

His letters are among the century’s finest.

—John Lahr, New Yorker
