Recensies

The source material is among Williams’ most shocking: Sexual submission, cannibalism, and forced lobotomy are all integral to its plot. It’s almost inconceivable to think that a writer so fascinated with prurient subject matter could attract such A-list talent—and under the Hays’ Code no less—but such was Williams’ astonishing trajectory in the 1950s.
