The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone was the celebrated debut novel, albeit a thin one, of acclaimed author and playwright Tennessee Williams - a A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie being perhaps his most famous two works.
In this gripping overseas romance, narrated with a graceful British lilt by Shirley Knight, a wealthy aging actress, Karen Stone, is adrift in Rome after her husband dies of a fatal heart attack during the journey over. When she falls for a much younger Italian lover, the passion ignites and treachery commences in richly rewarding detail.
