Michael Paller looks at Tennessee Williamss plays from the 1940s through the 1960s against the backdrop of the playwrights life story, providing fresh details.

Through this lens Paller examines the evolution of mid-twentieth-century Americas acknowledgment and acceptance of homosexuality. From the early one-act Auto-da-Fé and The Glass Menagerie through Camino Real, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Garden District and the late Something Cloudy, Something Clear, Pallers book investigates how Williamss earliest critics marginalized or ignored his gay characters and why, beginning in the 1970s, many gay liberationists reviled them. Lively, blunt, and provocative, this book will appeal to anyone who loves Williams, Broadway, and the theater.
