Author Tony Narducci fell in love with Tennessee Williams’ poetry when he was 14 years old. For Narducci, Williams was a genius who redefined theater in America, the greatest living playwright, and perhaps one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. So when 33-year-old Narducci met Williams at a Key West bar in February of 1982, the encounter was more than coincidence. It was destiny.
In The Frightened Heart of Me, Narducci narrates the story of how after meeting Williams he was drawn deep into the playwright’s life and work—a journey that would change Narducci’s life in every way. This biography shares how Narducci and William’s time together was an odyssey of adventure, emotional entanglement, and insight.
