9780878056507: Conversations with Paul Bowles (Literary Conversations Series)

For the past forty years, Paul Bowles has answered questions about the autobiographical references in his novels (The Sheltering Sky, Let It Come Down, The Spider's House, and Up Above the World) and about his work as a composer in New York, all the time insisting, "I don't want anyone to know about me."

In these more than twenty interviews dating from 1952 to the present, Bowles gives a variety of answers that reveal as much as they conceal. Too gracious to refuse interviews, he regards inquiries with the same clear-eyed detachment that marks his prose, wondering, "Why is it that Americans expect an artist's work to be a reflection of his life? They never seem to want to believe that the two can be independent of each other and go their separate ways." Despite his reticence, Bowles frankly discusses his "unconscious" writing practice, his views on the "illiterate imagination," existentialism, his various experiments with altered states of consciousness, and nearly fifty years of expatriate life in Morocco.

Included are three interviews never before published, several interviews that originally appeared in now obscure journals, plus interviews by Jay Mclnerny for Vanity Fair, Jeffrey Bailey for The Paris Review, and Michael Rogers for Rolling Stone.

About the Author:

Gena Dagel Caponi, a lecturer in American studies at the University of Texas at San Antonio, is also the author of Paul Bowles: Romantic Savage.

From Booklist:

Interest in the work of Paul Bowles and in the man himself does not appear to be appreciably declining. Caponi undertakes one further attempt to satiate readers' appetite with a collection of interviews dating from the early 1950s to as recently as 1990. The redundant aspect of repeated interviews with the same subject is tempered by Bowles' capacity over the years to give distinctively different responses to similar questions. His great regard for language crops up again and again, along with fascinating insights into such facets of Moroccan culture as dance cults and magic spirits. Perhaps Bowles' mesmerizing conversational dexterity is the one constant here. Set to follow this book is Caponi's next, titled Paul Bowles: Romantic Savage. Scheduled for publication in 1994, it certainly sounds provocative enough for any Bowles fan. Alice Joyce

Descripción University Press of Mississippi, Jackson, 1993. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. First Paperback Edition. Paul Bowles, author of The Sheltering Sky, speaks his fluid mind, in nineteen interviews given from 1952 to 1990. Though often giving different answers over the years to similar questions, some constants do emerge: for instance, Bowles fascination with Moroccan culture, with music, and his insistence on the precise use of language. This collection is an engaging introduction to the man and his work, and even readers familiar with Bowles will find new insights here. It includes a bibliography of his writings, and a chronology of his life. Presciently, in a 1990 interview with Stephen Davis, Bowles mentions that, if forced to choose a biographer, he would want it to be Millicent Dillon, the biographer of his late wife, Jane."Each man's life has the quality he gives it, but you can't say that life itself has any qualities. If we suffer, it's because we haven't learned how not to." "The man who wrote the books didn't exist. No writer exists. He exists in his books, and that's all." "I write unconsciously, without knowing what I am writing." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Nº de ref. de la librería 042645
