Tennessee Williams [9780393021240]

  • John Lahr has produced a theater biography like no other. Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh gives intimate access to the mind of one of the most brilliant playwrights of his century, whose plays reshaped the American theater and the nation?s sense of itself. This deeply researched biography sheds light on Williams?s warring family, his lobotomized sister, his guilt, his plays, his sexuality and numerous affairs, his misreported death, even the shenanigans surrounding his estate. Here, in the sensational saga of Williams?s rise and fall, Lahr captures not just the man?s tempestuous public persona but also his backstage life, where Marlon Brando, Anna Magnani, Bette Davis, Maureen Stapleton, Diana Barrymore, Tallulah Bankhead, and Elia Kazan have scintillating walk-on parts. This is biography of the highest order: a book about the major American playwright of his time written by the major American drama critic of his time.
