Tennessee Williams' letters to Donald Windham, 1940-1965 by Tennessee Williams( Book )

24 editions published between 1976 and 1996 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first collected letters by Williams to be published, rich in anecdote and gossip, spirited and uninhibited in tone. Most are from 1940-1951, when the two writers were passing from obscurity to success. Williams was 28 when he met the 19-year-old Windham. They decided to collaborate on a play, and while Windham stayed in New York, Williams roamed the country, searching out solitude or beautiful young men as his volatile moods dictated. The letters celebrate the worlds of publishing, theater, and film, but also offer glimpses of sources of Williams' drama in long, moving letters about his family, whose misery caused him so much anguish and conflict. Framing this spontaneous and mercurial talk is Windham's reflective commentary.--From publisher description

The hero continues, a novel by Donald Windham( Book )

7 editions published between 1960 and 1966 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A version of the artist's dilemma, which (despite the misleading copy intended perhaps for the jacket blurb) is neither sensational nor full of special pleading. The few unavoidable plot cliches do not, in general, extend to the prose, which is terse, almost unemotional in the description of the bizarre nightmare exasperation which constitutes most of Denis Freeman's existence. The book, in fact, opens with a nightmare; it passes briefly through the waking, near-comic nightmare of his years of un-success, (Denis is the sort of butter-side-down human being who burns holes in sofas and loses things) -- on to his enormous success as a playwright. It conveys indirectly, through minor but grotesque scenes, asides, practicalities and Denis' work habits, a view of the artist as a human being alone in a world he can barely control except in the one clear area of his talent. And even this can be kept only by constant renewal. Denis' Broadway success (mostly offstage) is treated as merely the logical outcome of the inner pressure of talent; but it adds unbearably to a psyche and body already under stress. Difficult directors, a disastrous love affair, the slow drift away of friends, and Denis' own fugues are paralleled by inner symptoms. Hypochondria is not exactly the definition of his illnesses, nightmares, sexual difficulties and the accidents in which he loses an eye and an arm. They seem rather to be the externalized symbols of the price that must be paid by an internally lopsided human being. And Denis, for all his awareness and talent, is just that. What makes him unusual-- is the sad, almost cold resignation with which he accepts his price. A trifle inconclusive, but nevertheless a skillful and interesting book, with shades of Nathaniel West quite evident."--Kirkus
