Paul bowles, like many of his characters, seems an incomplete person, almost empty and completely defined by circumstance and enviroment. When Gertrude Stein suggested he vist Morocco, he quickly packed his bags and left N.Y. traveling with notable composser Aron Copland. Immediatley he fell in love with the native folk music and the natives' completely different way of thinking and experienceing the world, a place where 'reality' and 'fantasy' had no distiction. He found himself in a magical realm of spells, exotic landscapes, bizarre trance rituals, hypnotic music, crazy kif-inspired folk tales. Includes an interview with Mr. Smith, the Vampire of Tangiers.

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
