unfortunately tennessee never wrote another novel. this only one is magnificent. mrs stone & her reluctant lover half her age enjoy the city. mrs stone has never been happy before this, but it won,t of course last. I seem to have perhaps eroneously gleaned that the ending was changed at some point to a more happy one I came upon this book whileuncharaistically surfing the tv & it was on tcm. I knew what it was immediately though I'd not seen the movie before. lauren bacall takes the lead here, looking amazingly young, not faded as in the book. mrs stone was a bit past 50, lauren was very young at least as we remember her recently see the movie, read the book..

Not really a novel of Rome but an incisive portrait of a middle-aged American actress who loses her husband and profession, then seeks a personal rebirth in the ancient city of Rome with a beautiful young lover. The prose is exquisite and the characterizations subtle and fascinating. Williams' only novel but as good as his more famous plays.

The story is about a lost older American widow who finds a new life in Rome with a young gigolo.

Tennessee Williams is a playwright first. This is a novella. The difference between a play and a novel is that a play is all scenes while a novel is heavily loaded with narration. In Williams' case, he is a lyrical playwright, rich in romantic detail, but he goes overboard with narration in this novella, sacrificing his much needed dialog.

Having seen the movie (several times) which was superb and now having read the novella, I flatly say the movie is far better.

Typical Tennessee Williams. A woman in a predicament, but this time it isn't economics or physical limitations that she grapples with. Not unlike Blanche DuBois, Karen Stone struggles with the loss of youth and sex appeal, but from a position of financial security. I love this story. I own the Vivien Leigh/Warren Beatty movie, and I've seen the Helen Mirren Showtime movie. I think a lot of women Karen's age relate to her situation.

love his writing==couldn't put it down. Great story with a twist at the end. Do see the movie, as well, though. It is equally good.

Tennessee Williams' is masterful in this short novella of a woman who is struggling to come to terms both with the death of her husband and the lose of her looks to age. She looks for validation in the worst places, while covering herself up in the beauty of the Eternal City.

Short and sweet and most likely to be loved by people who love Rome -- as Tennessee himself did.

Aging? This is the book to read! The plot as well as the language are amazing and catching! It is about how a beauty is dealing with her older age.
"Drifting" through life's truths, lies, and self deceptions. The interior life that we all wish to know and silently dread. The complexity of a character expressed in the simplest of terms through direct and honest prose. Williams reveals himself in the heart of a lonely woman. I read it through in one night and enjoyed it thoroughly. A must-read for true fans.
