User reviews about the book
By Ava Cavelle
My favorite play of all time.
For anyone that hasn't already, you should watch Gillian Anderson as Blanche DuBois in the Young Vic production of this play. (Absolutely amazing, and is probably available online somewhere.)
One of my favorites, Tennessee Williams = brilliant. Blanche’s character contains a multitude of our wants and defects. I can hear, watch, read this story over and over again without tiring of it.
A Streetcar Named Desire
Every young person should read this work, with it's classic depiction of a Borderline Personality Disorder, as brilliantly portrayed in the extreme by the character of Blanch du Bois. Such women have been the subject of endless novels, plays, poetry, and heartbreak, through the centuries.

Tennessee Williams was a genius. He wrote so autobiographically and genuinely, revealing truths about society without appearing to be "preachy." Streetcar is a fantastic drama, and I would recommend it to anyone, but just make sure that you are psychologically prepared for some intense scenes. A masterpiece!!
