In Tangier

To Mohamed Choukri, Tangier was 'the most extraordinary and mysterious city in the world.' A haven for many Western writers in the twentieth century, Tangier drew the likes of Paul Bowles, Jean Genet and Tennessee Williams. Each was befriended by Choukri. Choukri's recollections of these encounters offer a unique insight into these three cult figures of twentieth-century literature.
