An affectionate tribute to one of America's leading writers, author of The Sheltering Sky. This is an entertaining collection of reminiscences about the enigmatic writer and composer whose elusive self is still a subject of conjecture for the myriad famous friends who continue to visit his Tangier apartment. Writers, painters, composers, and journalists contributed; nearly all provide their first impressions of encounters with Bowles in Tangier. There are many anecdotes about his wife, Jane, as well. Among the many well known contributors are William S. Burroughs, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsburg, David Herbert, Francis Bacon, Patricia Highsmith, James Purdy, and Stephen Spender. "Gives us the secret of Bowles' odd magic" TLS.
