Two Years Beside the Strait: Tangier Journal, 1987-89

Bowles, Paul


1st Edition

This hardback edition is limited to 500 copies only. Yellow cloth boards with black lettering to spine. Bright orange endpapers. Dust jacket (designed by Keith Cunningham, with a photograph of the author by Roy Round) slightly rubbed. Illustrated with previously unpublished photographs. *** Mick Jagger, Patricia Highsmith, the film maker Bertolucci and others make an appearance in Paul Bowles’s rather pessimistic journal entries from the years 1987 to 1989. ‘Since it won’t take place until October, I was thinking: Perhaps she or I will die first. That’s one way of making the future a little more acceptable.’
