"Spirits of Tangier" highlights some of the legendary residents who became Tessa Codrington's friends: Paul and Jane Bowles, the American painter Marguerite McBey, and the English aristocrat, the Hon. David Herbert. Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton, playwright Tennessee Williams and the painter Claudio Bravo are revealed in candid portraits. The splendid and sometimes sad stories of great houses that change their styles with their very different owners are featured, combined with pictures from some of the extravagant parties still hosted in them.
