Tennessee Williams

Anecdote...

Newspaper reports in 1961 announced that Williams had decided not to attend any further sessions with his psychoanalyst. Asked the reason for this decision, the playwright replied, “He was meddling too much in my private life.”

Quote-worthy...

When I stop working the rest of the day is posthumous. Im only really alive when Im writing.

~Tennessee Williams
