About the Author

PAUL BOWLES was born in 1911 in New York City. He was first published in the old transition in 1928, and entered the University of Virginia in 1929, which he quit for the Left Bank. Two years later he made his first visit to North Africa, a tentative trip which lasted for four years. He intended to return there to live, but World War II interfered; instead, he spent five years in Latin America.

After the war Mr. Bowles returned to Morocco to buy a small house in the medina of Tangier, and from this base he began to travel southward and eastward. In 1949 he first visited Ceylon and India, and returned often, eventually buying a small island off the south coast of Ceylon, which served as his winter headquarters until 1959. Now, once again, he lives all year round in Morocco.

Mr. Bowles is the author of three novels, The Sheltering Sky, Let It Come Down, and The Spider’s House, and of a collection of short stories, The Delicate Prey. He is also well known as a composer; and single-handedly, over a period of years, he has garnered for the Library of Congress one of the largest and most diversified collections of recordings of native North African music.
