V knížce zařazené aktovky amerického dramatika, pevně zakotveného i na našich divadelních scénách, vznikly vesměs v době jeho dramatických začátků, ale mají už všechny znaky jeho pozdějších vrcholných her. Stejně jako ony nechtějířešit psychologické problémy jedince, ale snaží se na příběhu několika lidí dobrat se pravdy lidského zážitku, ukázat, že nejsou "ani ničemové, ani hrdinové, nýbrž jen cesty a scestí, kterými se ubírají lidé"

Camino Real. [A play] by Tennessee Williams( Book )
73 editions published between 1948 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 1,369 libraries worldwide
In this phantasmagorical play, the Camino Real (pronunciation: Cá-mino Réal) is a long highway, a dead end, a police state in a vaguely Latin American country, a nightmare, and an inescapable condition. Characters from history and literature -- Don Quixote, Casanova, Camille, Lord Byron -- inhabit a place where corruption, starvation, indifference and greed have immobilized anyone who tries to escape. Then, into this netherworld, the archetypal Kilroy arrives -- a sailor and all-American guy with "a heart as big as the head of baby." Like others before him in the Camino Real, Kilroy is robbed, conned, turned into a patsy, and he very nearly breaks ... but not quite. When this experimental epic opened on Broadway in 1953, it confounded the critics, but not the audiences. The play's iconic/ironic humor, playful conceits, and towering concerns about society's demand for conformity, the courage of the artist, and the power of compassion have made it a classic
