Overview


This concise book examines the interaction between earlier and other writers,
painters (and anthropologists) and Morocco, and then examines the effects of this
culture and its magical practices upon the person, psyche and writings of Paul
Bowles.

Interwoven into this work is a memoir, the author's friendship with Bowles,
his visits to Tangier, residence there, correspondence with the writer, the
lessons which were encoded in almost all his interactions with Bowles.

The fulcrum upon which this book rests is to ask a question, the influence of
the magical practices of Morocco upon Bowles, a question which could not be
legitimately asked of any other American writer.
