Days: Tangier Journal, 1987-1989

Author(s): Paul Bowles

Travel

Between 1987 and 1989, Paul Bowles, at the suggestion of a friend, kept a journal to record the daily events of his life. What emerges is more than just a record of the meals, conversations, and health concerns of the author of The Sheltering Sky, but a fascinating look at an artist at work in a new medium. Characterized by a refreshinng informality, clear-sightedness, and passages of exquisite prose, these pages record with equal fascination the behavior of an itinerant spider, a brutal episode of violence in Tangier marketplace, and the pageantry and excess of Malcolm Forbes' 70th birthday party. In Days, a master observer of the foreign and obscure turns his attentions toward his own daily existence, giving us a startlingly candid portrait of his life in contemporary Tangier.
