“Tom said, as far as he was concerned, he’d rather go to work and live in the cheapest part of the city than see me go through this any more.” — Edwina Dakin Williams diary entry, 1931 Tennessee Williams Annual Review Volume 18 (2019) edited by R. Barton Palmer The personal diaries of Edwina Dakin Williams, Tennessee Williams’s strong- willed and long-suffering mother, open the 2019 issue of the Tennessee Williams Annual Review. Collected in print for the first time, her entries offer a powerful view of young Tom Williams’s tumultuous, sometimes violent childhood and immerse readers in the raw material that was transformed into The Glass Menagerie’s unforgettable Amanda Wingfield. Founded in 1998, the Tennessee Williams Annual Review remains the only regularly published journal devoted to Williams’s works, influence, material history, and cultural context.
