Jane Bowles

JANE BOWLES was an American writer whose modest but brilliant output was highly praised by likes of Tenessee Williams, Truman Capote and John Ashberry. She was married to the American novelist Paul Bowles. Her only novel, Two Serious Ladies, was published in 1943.

'Hard drinking, hard living, and neurotic, the outlines of Jane’s exhaustingly dramatic persona very often overshadowed her art. At forty, while living in Tangier, she suffered a debilitating stroke that would send her into premature convalescence. She died sixteen years later, alone, in a Spanish convent. And yet her literary output, small but perfect, puts her on a stylistic planet all her own.' – New Yorker
