517CbxbnZML._SX337_BO1,204,203,200_James Grissom is the author of Follies of God: Tennessee Williams and the Women of the Fog. In 1982, Grissom spent five days with the great playwright, who had a task for him: go to all the actresses who were his muses over the years, and discuss what they meant to Williams. Williams died five months later, and starting in 1989, Grissom began the project of interviewing each of these actresses, plus actors and directors affiliated with Williams. This book is the result. Hosted by Richard Wolinsky.
