Description - In Tangier by Mohamed Choukri

Tangier, 'the most extraordinary and mysterious city in the world', in Mohamed Choukri's mind, 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 Choukri. Collected here for the first time are Choukri's delightful recollections of these encounters, offering a fresh and unpretentious insight into the lives of these cult figures. The sights and sounds of seventies Tangier are brought vividly to life, as are the larger-than-life characters of these extraordinary men, through ordinary everyday events. It is a must-have for anyone with an interesting Tangier's literary life.
