In Tangier

by Mohamed Choukri - £9.99  Telegram Books (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846590610 | ISBN 10: 1846590612

Tangier, 'the most extraordinary and mysterious city in the world,' according to Mohamed Choukri, was a haven for many Western writers in the early twentieth century. Paul Bowles, Jean Genet and Tennessee Williams all spent time there, and each was befriended in turn by the Choukri.
Collected here for the first time are Choukri's delightful recollections of these encounters, offering a truly fresh and unpretentious insight into the lives of these cult figures.
The sights and sounds of seventies Tangier are brought vividly into focus, as are the larger–than–life characters of these extraordinary men, through ordinary everyday events.
Translators: Paul Bowles (Jean Genet and Tennessee Williams), Gretchen Head (Paul Bowles)
