Tennessee Williams's authorized biographer gives readers an entertaining, loving and sometimes painful look at the playwright's many faces. Michael Mitchell's performance is clean, clear and well paced. His tone is smooth and sensitive, accenting the dramatic voice of the author's writing style. Because of Mitchell's easy vocal manner, the text takes a front seat. Read in character,with just a touch of upper-crust twang, quotes from both men and women supply a textured background for the story. Listeners are led gently through the dramatic ups and downs of Williams's life with Mitchell's brand of Southern grace. J.S.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
