Waterstones: A Distant Episode by Paul Bowles
Presented by Ali Zarbafi
07:30pm to 9:00pm
Paul Bowles was born in New York City in 1910, and in addition to work as a composer for the theatre he achieved success with his short stories and novels. The Sheltering Sky, published in 1949 and based on expatriate life in Morocco, remains his most popular work. He was openly bisexual, as was his wife Jane, whom he married in 1938. In his later years Bowles translated Moroccan authors in addition to Jorge Luis Borges, Jean-Paul Sartre and many other Spanish, Portuguese and French writers.
