Makes one appreciate the fact that Bowles was not only a gifted writer/translator, but also a brilliant composer. Provides a lot of detail about his relationship with his wife (Jane) and the beat poets. Bowles was visited by Ginsberg, Burroughs, Tennessee Williams, and Gore Vidal (among others), and can be credited with the fact that many became interested in Morocco as a result of his writing. ( )
