Suddenly Last Summer by Tennessee Williams

Book cover for Suddenly Last Summer
These three dramatic works that explore the darker side of human nature and are haunted by a sense of isolation and regret. "Suddenly Last Summer" is the starkly told story of Catherine, who seemingly goes insane after her cousin Sebastian dies in grisly circumstances on a trip to Europe. "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" is a passionate examination of a wealthy old woman as she recounts her memories in the face of death, while in "Small Craft Warnings" a motley group of people - including a blowsy beautician, a discredited alcoholic doctor, a vulnerable waif and two gay men - sit around a seedy bar on the Californian coast, each contemplating their own desperate fate.
