Resumen del Libro

For the old crocodile, as Williams called himself late in life, the past was always present, and so it is with his continual shifting and intermingling of times, places, and memories as he weaves this story. When Memoirs was first published in 1975, it created quite a bit of turbulence in the mediathough long self-identified as a gay man, Williams candor about his love life, sexual encounters, and drug use was found shocking in and of itself, and such revelations by Americas greatest living playwright were called a raw display of private life by The New York Times Book Review. As it turns out, thirty years later, Williams look back at his life is not quite so scandalous as it once seemed, he recalls his childhood in Mississippi and St. Louis, his prolonged struggle as a starving artist, the overnight success of The Glass Menagerie in 1945, the death of his long-time companion Frank Merlo in 1962, and his confinement to a psychiatric ward in 1969 and subsequent recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, all with the same directness, compassion, and insight that epitomize his plays.
