Tennessee Williams' South ( visu )
4 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in English and held by 526 libraries worldwide
"The brutes and the belles. The gadflies and the good ol' boys. The taboos and the profound truths. They're all part of a Tennessee state of mind -- a realm of places, personalities and ideas. Williams is front and center for this exploration, reading from his works, placing them in the context of his life, and serving as guide in visits to his career-shaping refuge in New Orleans and his latter-day writing quarters in Key West. Also dramatizations by distinguished actors ... give flesh-and-bone immediacy to some of the writer's famed works. In his own words. In his own places. The resilient character and memorable characters of one of our greatest writers reside in Tennessee Williams' South."--Container
