Thomas Lanier “Tennessee” Williams III (1911-1983) was a prolific American writer of short stories, novels, poetry and, most famously, screenplays. Some of his major works include The Glass Menagerie (1945), A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Summer and Smoke (1948) and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (1955).
Tennesse is a limited edition, four-color letterpress collection of three of Tennessee Williams’ plays: These Are The Stairs You Got To Watch, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and The Glass Menagerie. The production was undertaken in celebration of the Shakespeare Theatre’s production of “Five by Tenn,” five one-act plays by Tennessee Williams at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC in 2004 and it’s published by DBS Publications. DBS is no stranger to The Book Blog, having been featured here before with Three Miles from Providence.
