The Paul Bowles Web Site

Composer, distinguished author and translator, and man of belles letters, Paul Bowles passed away in 1999 in Morocco, which was for many years was his primary place of residence. Bowles best-known work is probably his novel The Sheltering Sky, though he also translated Sartre's "Huis Clos" (upon which he bestowed the title "No Exit") and was an accomplished composer of music for the theatre. Created by his long-time friends and colleagues, this authorized Paul Bowles site contains a number of reminisces about his life from such friends as Ned Rorem (the noted American composer), Rodrigo Rey Rosa, and Irene Herrmann. Some provided essays interview Bowles, some discuss his literary legacy, and others talk about his many compositions. All in all, the site offers a number of insightful and intimate commentaries on one of America's most storied writers of the 20th century.
