Travels, Paperback Book


Paul Bowles began travelling the moment he could - leaving America as a teenager to visit Gertrude Stein in Paris.

He settled in Morocco after the war, and for thirty years travelled in North Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia, Indian and Sri Lanka (where he bought an island).

He wrote articles, essays and journals along the way - writing which ranks with his novels in its astute observation, dry wit and impeccable prose.

Travels brings together for the first time Paul Bowles's travel writing and journals.

It includes the full text of his book Their Heads Are Green along with thirty other pieces, previously unpublished in book form.

They are accompanied by fifty photos from the Bowles archive.
