Shop Talk
Dennis Brown

The Theater, The Theater, Oh How I Love The Theater – An excellent collection of interviews with the likes of Edward Albee, Lanford Wilson, David Merrick, Jason Miller and William Goldman. Tennessee Williams’ mother, Edwina Dakin Williams, steals the show, but ol’ Tennessee gets the best quote, a line that summarizes the quintessential sorrow of a Tennessee Williams play. “I was always falling down during the 1960s,” he tells Dennis Brown, “and I would always say, before falling, ‘I’m about to fall down,’ and almost nobody, nobody ever caught me.”
