When Memoirswas first published in 1975, it created quite a bit of turbulence in the media - though long self-identified as a gay man, Williams' candour about his love life, sexual encounters, and drug use was found shocking in and of itself, and such revelations by America's greatest living playwright were called 'a raw display of private life' by The New York Times Book Review. As it turns out, more than 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 Menageriein 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.… (mais)

Saw the play last night at 45 Downstairs. Hesitating between 3 and 4 stars. I'd like to see another production of it some time, which is not to say this was a bad one, but that I'd like a second opinion. In Melbourne it was put on as part of the Midsummer Festival: unfortunately it is therefore being marketed as a play about homosexuality, which it is not - or rather no more so than it is about mental illness, poverty, relations between men and women, the nature of art and the ways in which the people of New Orleans relate to their surroundings....

Not least, it is about whether the cook should spit in the gumbo as it is being prepared.

The Memoirs by Tennessee Williams were clearly written for publication by an author self-confident enough to write whatever he liked in whatever way he liked, seemingly with disdain for the reader or even the publisher. However, this makes the book very personal. The book is chronological, but not evenly spread out. Likewise, the book doesn't aim at accuracy or completeness. The Memoirs could be read as a supplement to a biography but aren't detailed enough to be read instead of a biography. Reading these Memoirs one gets the feeling the author enjoyed looking back on his life en enjoyed writing about it so openly and explicitely, which was possible in the early 1970s when the book was published. Here is a writer who enjoys telling his story, and so many of his romances and sexual escapades find their ways into the book, including his long-term relationship with Frank Merlo. On the other hand, the book is somewhat disappointing for readers who are expecting to read more about Williams career as a writer, his ideas and inspiration, literary friendships, etc., although it is worth mentioning that there is a lot about his friendship with Carson McCullers and readers interested in that author might need to refer to these pages. It is therefore questionable why Penguin Books published thje book as a Modern Classic, probably more as a tribute to the upcoming openly gay writing of the 1970s that the literary merits of the work.

Some detergent flowed through these pages, but it's still fun to see his perspective on what happened. Williams is an icon. He went where no [other] 'man' had gone before. ( )

M'esperava trobar un llibre que poc o molt parlés del món del teatre. Malauradament només és un llistat interminable de trobades sexuals, viatges i laments autocomplaents. ( )
