Quoteth Tennessee Williams





"Tallulah was fun for a time--grand and beautiful and unreal, like a gazelle in the laundromat: 
Out of place, graceful, astonishing. Then the gazelle shat on the floor and you weren't sure which agency to call to remove it."

    3. Just outside of Chestertown, in a church cemetery, as far from the church as possible. Seems her brother had connections. The lake nearby may be a cesspool. Cheers.

  7. I was disappointed to click on the "gazelles" tag and find nothing else in the archives.

    Can we expect more?

  8. I often travel through the older Bankhead tunnel when in Mobile Ala. Named for her father, I like to think that I'm traveling through Tallulah's old tunnel instead.
