DAVID KAPLAN ON TENNY IN PTOWN : A Must Read
For all who love Tennessee Williams and Provincetown, David Kaplan's text is one of the best, taking the reader back to the 1940s atmosphere of the PTown of Williams' muse.

Expertly crafted and well-researched, Kaplan's text fuses Provinetown summers and the writing career of America's greatest 20th century playwright. Kaplan is cofounder and curator of the Provincetown Tennessee Williams festival. The book, "Tennessee Williams in Provincetown" can be ordered on Amazon.com.
