Leading Men

Review From User :

My first perfect book of 2019. It's been awhile since I've read a book I just simply could not put down. Christopher Castellani weaves pure magic with Leading Men, historical fiction about the romantic relationship between playwright Tennessee Williams and Frank Merlo. Their party also includes a fictitious actress named Anja Bloom, the author John Horne Burns, his lover Sandro, and in present day, Sandro's grandson and his boyfriend who inspire Anja to mount Williams' final one-act in Provincetown. I fell madly in love with Frank Merlo. Castellani gets inside his head trying to figure out what makes this working class man tick. It's Merlo's story we devour and crave in Leading Man. Captivating and beautiful. I can't stop thinking about it.
