Publisher Synopsis

"The "Notebooks" take us on a harrowing journey, and we come to know Williams the person very intimately, in the way he quite pitilessly knew himself. Reading them is like reading Van Gogh's letters Read more...

schema:reviewBody""Tennessee Williams's Notebooks, here published for the first time, presents by turns a passionate, whimsical, movingly lyrical, self-reflective, and completely uninhibited record of the life of this monumental American genius from 1936 to 1981. In these pages Williams (1911-1981) wrote out his most private thoughts; reflected on his plays, stories, and poems; and gave accounts of his social, professional, and sexual encounters. The notebooks are the repository of Williams' fears, obsessions, passions, and contradictions. They served as his companions throughout his solitary journey and form possibly the most spontaneous self-portrait by any writer in American history." "Meticulously edited and annotated by Margaret Bradham Thornton, the notebooks follow Williams' growth as a writer from his undergraduate days to the publication and production of his most famous plays, from his drug addiction and drunkenness to the heights of his literary accomplishments."--BOOK JACKET."
