    "Boy do I love Tennesse Williams. The range this writer has. Anyways, I wouldn't necessarily say this is his best work as subjective as that may be. I read this last summer for my english course in college. It's a great read don't get me wrong, short 72 pages. The husband has PTSD and the other one feels inadequate. A lot of people can relate to the situation I found these two men in. Nonetheless, great read. I just really enjoyed Streetcar named Desire. Don't let me sway your decision as this book is groundbreaking in it's own sense. "
