A fine first edition, in the original binding. Foxing to page block and first and last several pages. In a fine unclipped dust jacket with very minor wear to corners.
This is the first collection of short stories by Tennessee Williams ever to be published in this country. It shows every facet of this author"s remarkable talent--his tenderness as in The Field of Blue Children, his capacity to shock in the terrifying One Arm, his gift for the macabre in The Coming of Something to The Widow Holly, his uncanny ability to get under the skins of sexual perverts in the pathetic but enormously amusing Two on a Party, and there can seldom have been a more persuasive portrait of a man going to pieces than that of Brick Pollitt in the volumes title story.
