This semi-autobiographical account of the author’s early days in 1940s St. Louis mirrors the turmoil of his inner and domestic life with that of the nation, as World War II envelops the globe. Williams' haunting and poetic portraits of his mother, “Amanda Wingfield,” and his sister, “Laura,” have become icons of the American stage. In this beautiful, desperate tale of the author’s struggle to break free of the burdens of his past and present, we see the forces that formed Williams' brilliance as a writer; and we become privy to a world “lit by lightning” as well as the soft glow of fragile candlelight.
