While browsing in the neighborhood bookshop, Izzy came across this cover of a rakish Tennessee Williams. Just as Mark Twain liked to write in bed in his pyjamas, perhaps Williams did his best work in this elegant glen plaid dressing gown.
Boy that’s great…I wonder what type of fabric it is – maybe an ultrfine cashmere?
I’m imagining it to be the finest merino, or perhaps viyella – a cotton/merino wool blend that seems to have fallen out of favour in North America, but is simply divine, delicious, & wonderful.
(And also, the quote from the Heart of Darkness? The only worthwhile thing from that entire book, I think. Bravo Izzy.)
I think it is a masculine photo of Tennessee Williams, smoking suspiciously and seems to have deep harrows in his eyes. Street Car Named Desire, the photo reeks of it, the struggle and the newspaper in a leather folder. I also, wonder what fabric he is wearing, maybe, Scottish Kelt or, something. Too bad they didn’t have nicotine patches back then.
It’s merino wool in my mind too. Makes great clothing.
