Main Description
Paul Bowles met Gertrude Stein in 1931 and became one of her most distinguished proteges. She directed him toward prose description and to Tangier, where he has lived for twenty-five years. There is no doubt that the exotic, mysterious Morocco has exerted an influence on Bowles, who has earned a distinguished reputation for compelling works of fiction revealing a profound understanding of the Moslem world. Stewart's book on Bowles, the first on this subject, derives extensively from un­published letters of Gertrude Stein and others, from interviews with Bowles, and from the novelist's unpublished notebook material.
