Like an alchemist, Tennessee Williams would dip his pen in reality and make precious, magical fiction out of it. This journey through his life focuses on the influence of specific people and places on selected works.
Adapted and expanded from the widely successful lecture created by Augustin J Correro for the annual Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival, this book is full of fascinating behind-the-curtain tidbits about the playwright the world knows along with analyses of characters he created and real-life people he moved among. These topics and more are doled out generously in this informative and entertaining look at a cultural icon.
Augustin Correro is a Mississippi native who is proud to call New Orleans home. He is a director, acting coach, playwright, and Tennessee Williams scholar. He has taught Tennessee Williams 101 at the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival and the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival in New Orleans. He holds an M.F.A. in theatre performance pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University and a B.A. in theatre from Mississippi University for Women. He was the project manager for the Tennessee Williams' Neighborhood Exhibit in New Orleans, curated by David Kaplan.
