Annotation This biography of Paul Bowles (1910-1999) that includes interviews with Bowles and the people who know him. Christopher Sawyer-Laucanno delves deeply into the life of a writer and musician who was perhaps most famous for the expatriate bohemianism of his years in Tangiers with his wife, the writer Jane Bowles. His biographer examines Bowles's life in relation to his books (including his autobiographical writings), his musical compositions and criticism, and his friends, who included Gertrude Stein, Aaron Copland, William Burroughs, Virgil Thompson, Tennessee Williams, and Allen Ginsberg.
First Line It was unseasonably warm in New York City on the morning of December 30, 1910.
