Item description for In Tangier We Killed the Blue Parrot by Barbara Adair...
This mesmerizing novel draws the reader into the creative, erotic, and exiled minds of authors Paul and Jane Bowles. Set in Morocco in the 1940s, the story weaves around two well-known writers: Paul, a composer and the author of The Sheltering Sky, and Jane, the author of Two Serious Ladies. Through an impressive amount of research Adair recreates the lives of these literary giants, addressing themes of narcissism, betrayal, moral confusion, and love. Their struggles to write and to love, both each other and others, creates an unusually rich reading experience that proposes lingering questions about art, power, relationships, politics, and ethics.
