With the March 2018 publication of The Luck of Friendship: The Letters of Tennessee Williams and James Laughlin, there are five volumes of correspondence by the playwright in print. The editors of the new volume, Peggy L. Fox and Thomas Keith, will be joined by theater director and scholar Tom Mitchell to discuss the complex portrait of the playwright which emerges from the passion, substance, candor, insight, eloquence, and puckish wit in his letters. There is also much in this volume to be learned about both the private and professional life of the man who, as moderator Andrew Holleran has written, “could not write a graceless or unmemorable sentence.”
