Synopsis

Paul Bowles, a writer's writer, moved to Tangier, Morocco where he lived for over fifty years as an expatriate American writer--becoming known as the quintessential iconoclast. Against a backdrop of the exotic landscape of North Africa, the enigma of writer Paul Bowles begins to unravel. Interviews with the reclusive Bowles, who speaks with unprecedented candor about his work and his controversial private life, are intercut with the conflicting views of his detractors and supporters.
