Published as a trade paperback for the first time, with a new introduction by the acclaimed playwright John Patrick Shanley (Doubt) and the one-act on which The Rose Tattoo was based.The Rose Tattoo is larger than life―a fable, a Greek tragedy, a comedy, a melodrama―it is a love letter from Tennessee Williams to anyone who has ever been in love or ever will be. Professional widow and dressmaker Serafina delle Rosa has withdrawn from the world, locking away her heart and her sixteen-year-old daughter Rosa. Then one day a man with the sexy body of her late Sicilian husband and the face of a village idiot, Mangiacavallo (Italian for “eat a horse”), stumbles into her life and clumsily unlocks Serafina’s fiery anger, sense of betrayal, pride, wit, passion, and eventually her capacious love.

John Patrick Shanley is the author of Doubt: A Parable, which won the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for best play of 2005, and several screenplays, including Moonstruck, winner of the Academy Award for best original screenplay.
“The Rose Tattoo is life-loving and affirmative.”
“The Rose Tattoo is a buoyantly comic celebration of life and its inexhaustible capacity for breaking free from the past...it would be a hard heart that failed to surrender to its generous adult fairy tale vision.”
- The Independent [London]
“The Rose Tattoo is singular in the Williams canon...as poetic and wistful a work as Williams ever composed.”
- The New York Times
