With her smoky voice and Southern accent, Elizabeth Ashley is the perfect narrator for this “warts and all” biography of one of America’s most treasured literary icons. Ashley is no stranger to the works of Tennessee Williams—she starred in the 1974 Broadway revival of CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF. With poise and sensitivity she reflects the penetrating insights, lashing humor, and shattering anger that Williams expressed in his many letters and memoirs, which are liberally quoted throughout, covering everything from his troubled relationship with his father to his binge drinking, open homosexuality, and, most important of all, his absolute, untiring dedication to the craft of writing. Ashley is unsparing and loving in her reading, and Williams would have expected nothing less. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
