Summary, etc.:
When Paul Bowles moved to Tangiers, Morocco in 1949, it was a sanctuary for artists, writers and the wealthy to do as they pleased. Soon, his friends from America visited: Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Jack Kerouac, among others. The Hippies were lured there by the mysterious, exotic world he depicted in The Sheltering Sky. Based on an exclusive series of interviews with Bowles shortly before his death and anecdotes from friends and collaborators, it reveals his daring and visionary life.
