- DescriptionVolume II of these fascinating letters extends the record of Williams' correspondence through the most successful and intensely creative period of his life, which saw the production of A Streetcar Named Desire , The Rose Tattoo and Cat On a Hot Tin Roof .Featuring letters to (and sharp portraits of) Elia Kazan, Carson McCullers and Gore Vidal among others, the Broadway and Hollywood successes of America's premier dramatist are contrasted with a string of personal losses and a deepening depression.
- Author BiographyThomas Lanier Tennessee Williams was an American playwright, author of many stage classics. After years of obscurity, he became suddenly famous with The Glass Menagerie (1944), closely reflecting his own unhappy family background. This heralded a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Orpheus Descending, and Sweet Bird of Youth. His later work attempted a new style that did not appeal to audiences, and alcohol and drug dependence further inhibited his creative output. Williams adapted much of his best work for the cinema, and also wrote short stories, poetry, essays and a volume of memoirs.
