About This Item

HarperCollins, NY, 1991. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. "Fleeing New York in 1947, Paul Bowles settled in raffish Tangier, a wellspring for his fiction. Through the 1960s and early '70s, this haven for expatriates exerted its pull. Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Susan Sontag and Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton were among the city's visitors and residents. Then the dream died, though Paul Bowles stayed on. Green, a writer for People, captures Tangier's mood of surreal dislocation in a hypnotic narrative, a volatile mix of juicy gossip and literary history." [Pub. info] A superb biography of Bowles. 1ST EDITION
