Book Overview

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof first heated up Broadway in 1955 with its gothic American story of brothers vying for their dying father's inheritance amid a whirlwind of sexuality, untethered in the person of Maggie the Cat. The play also daringly showcased the burden of sexuality repressed in the agony of her husband, Brick Pollitt. In spite of the public controversy Cat stirred up, it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics Circle Award for that year. Williams, as he so often did with his plays, rewrote Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for many years--the present version was originally produced at the American Shakespeare Festival in 1974 with all the changes that made Williams finally declare the text to be definitive, and was most recently produced on Broadway in the 2003-04 season. This definitive edition also includes Williams' essay Person-to-Person, Williams' notes on the various endings, and a short chronology of the author's life. One of America's greatest living playwrights, as well as a friend and colleague of Williams, Edward Albee has written a concise introduction to the play from a playwright's perspective, examining the candor, sensuality, power, and impact of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof then and now.

   Book was great
The rating for this book is based on my opinion of the content, not the edition of the book or in any way. I recommend to people who like books such as The Perks of Becoming a Wallflower or Beloved or Ines of My Soul. Overall, it was a good, quick read recommended to anyone who doesn 't mind feeling a little sad at the end of a book.

   If you love the movie...
After watching a short intro about the film on TCM that hinted at some homosexual undertones for Big Poppa, I had to read the book. It's true. The film has very interesting little subtleties that the film doesn 't touch. Love the Lord.
