Tales of Desire

Tales of Desire $9.99

Tennessee Williams

Published by New Directions

“I cannot write any sort of story,” said Tennessee Williams to Gore Vidal, “unless there is at least one character in it for whom I have physical desire”

The five transgressive Tales of Desire - The Mysteries of the Joy Rio, One Arm, Desire and the Black Masseur, Hard Candy and The Killer Chicken and the Closet Queen - show the iconic playwright at his outrageous best

One of the world’s greatest playwrights Tennessee Williams was also a master of the short story with “a narrative tone of voice that is totally compelling” ~ Gore Vidal
