Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first volume of "The Selected Letters of Tennessee Williams" takes the author from boyhood through high school, college and tentative productions of fledgling work to screenwriting at MGM. The letters detail, in the playwright's own words, the painful intensity of his early life as the Williams' family drama creates a template for the plays to come.

Book News Annotation:

This volume features 330 letters written by Williams (1911-83) to some 70 correspondents from 1920 until 1945, the year of his first Broadway success, The Glass Menagerie, selected by leading Williams scholars: Devlin (English, U. of Missouri) and Tischler (emerita, English, Pennsylvania State U.). Includes photos of the playwright, family, and friends. Indexed by recipient and subject.
