Conversations with Paul Bowles

ISBN: 0878056505
Jackson, MS: University Press of Mississippi, 1993. First Printing. Softcover. Edited by Gena Dagel Caponi, the author of the essential Paul Bowles biography "Paul Bowles: Romantic Savage," this essential from University Press of Mississippi titled "Conversations with Paul Bowles" contains more than twenty interviews dating from 1952-1993. Bowles was known as being too gracious to refuse interviews, despite protesting all the way: "I don't want anyone to know about me." Bowles continued: "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." In this work, Bowles--with a sparingly rare frankness--"...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." Also included are "...three interviews never before published, several interviews that originally appeared in obscure journals, plus interviews by [noted New York writer] Jay McInerney for Vanity Fair, Jeffrey Bailey for The Paris Review, and Michael Rogers for Rolling Stone." (University Press of Mississippi). Book as new, still sealed. As New. [Item #3920]
