Tennessee Williams

by Tony Fitzpatrick

When you hang around New Orleans long enough, eventually you run into someone with a Tennessee Williams story. The legendary playwright lived there for a long time as a young man. And while his plays and repartee would lead you to believe that he lived in the Quarter proper and was part of that milieu, the truth is that actually lived out by Elysian Fields in a working-class enclave, one that was infinitely less glamorous than and without the transgressive chic of the gay Quarter culture.
