    PDF Memoirs PDF/EPUB µ Ú tyrakel.de memoirs kindle, Memoirs PDFI really wish I could have been around when this memoir originally came out Because what you'd expect from a memoir written by a giant of the American stage and what you get in this memoir are definitely not the same But the thing is I am not sure that's bad If you want to read this to learn about where Williams gets his characters from how he writes what themes and messages he's trying to get across in his plays how his personal life is portrayed in his plays etc etc etc you will get none of that NONE Still there is some real joy to be found in this kind of loose rambly gives no s memoir It is especially noteworthy that Williams is so open and unashamed about his s

    PDF Memoirs PDF/EPUB µ Ú tyrakel.de memoirs kindle, Memoirs PDFThere isn’t much of literary value in this endeavor Penned in the mid 1970s Williams appears to offer a hip rationalization of his life and peccadilloes though little is said about his work He loves Lawrence Chekhov and Brecht but does not reflect on them but rather notes several times that Jean Paul Sartre didn’t show up at party Not that he’s sulking He cruises Mexico with Leonard Bernstein and keeps Gore Vidal and Truman Capote from being arrested Then there’s the anonymous men The drink and then the drugs There’s considerable family pain on display I can relate His family’s fortunes were always rising and falling—Hawthorne slamming highballs in a St Louis boardinghouse It is the romantic in me but his soulmate was Carson McCullers and I’m fascinated by his memories of her cooking for him Art needs that uaint angle

    PDF Memoirs PDF/EPUB µ Ú tyrakel.de memoirs kindle, Memoirs PDFTennessee Williams was one of the most brilliant and creative writers of the 20th century but his complicated persona comes to the forefront in this rambling unaware memoirAt times a poignant reflection on coming of age gay in the 1930s South Williams begins his memoir with an interesting narrative of his time before fame as he gallivanted and came into his sexual identity These initial stories are insightful and tell the story of a gay man experiencing the freedoms that come with embracing cruising and sexual exploration Unfortunately the second half of the book devolves into a meandering collection of stories overflowing with remorse for failing his lover of 14 years Frankie who Williams abandons as Frankie dies of cancer Add to this stories of a self destructive man who refuses to acknowledge his responsibility in his own downfall and the latter half of

    PDF Memoirs PDF/EPUB µ Ú tyrakel.de memoirs kindle, Memoirs PDFThis was the first memoir I ever read while I was at school It opened a whole new world to me because at the time mid 1980s I just didn't think a gay man would write an open account of his life How wrong I was and utterly relieved that someone with the stature of Tennessee Williams could be this revelatory about himself He edited certain aspects out unknown to me at the time and played around with the truth somewhat but that doesn't stop this being a wonderful funny sad and inspirational story of this exuisi

    PDF Memoirs PDF/EPUB µ Ú tyrakel.de memoirs kindle, Memoirs PDFI love Tennessee Williams' plays but I was inspired to read Memoirs because of the snippets from it that John Waters included in Role Models And needless to say Waters didn't steer me wrong This book was juicy and honest and hilarious Tennessee Williams is as intriguing as his work Though he was admittedly high all the time at the time this book was written and published I think he was extremely lucid At least in the ways that count I couldn't help reading lines from this out loud to my boyfriend I can't wait to reread some TW now
