Outstanding bio of Tennessee Williams. John Lahr seamlessly weaves Williams' plays and life into one story. Great to see how it fits together.

tremendous research, well written, tedious in spots...a great well rounded interpretation of his relationships that drove him.

I have always enjoyed John Lahr's writing - clean, precise, efficient and enoyable.
