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.
