An Invisible Spectator: A Biography of Paul Bowles

New York, NY: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1989. First Edition. Hardcover. "Bowles wrote his parents about the beatnik invasion: 'Every day one sees more beards and filthy blue jeans, and the girls look like escapees from lunatic asylums, with white lipstick and black smeared around their eyes, and matted hair hanging around their shoulders. The leaders of the 'movement' have moved their headquarters here and direct their activities from here. Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, and Burroughs are all established in Tangier now, sending out their publications from here.' Indeed, during the early part of the 1960s Bowles spent a good deal of time in the company of the "movement's leaders." (p. 356) Here we have the richly informative biography of the great Paul Bowles from Christopher Sawyer-Luaucanno. Sawyer-Laucanno is also the author of "The Continual Pilgrimage: American Writers in Paris, 1944-1960" and a professor of Writing at MIT. This work is a must for anyone interested in Bowles' life and work, and the milieu in which he worked at large.
