Inhalt
An edge city, overlooking both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, Tangier is more than a destination, it is an escape, and the »Interzone«, as William Burroughs called it, has attracted spies, outlaws, outcasts and writers for centuries - men and women working out at the edge of literary forms, breaking through artistic borders. This outlaw originality is what most astonishes when encountering the literary history of Tangier for the first time. Particularly in the past century, the results were some of the most incendiary and influential books of our time, the most prominent being Burroughs' »Naked Lunch« and Bowles' »The Sheltering Sky«. The list of »edge« writers who were drawn to Tangier is long, among them Alexandre Dumas, Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, Jean Genet, Paul and Jane Bowles, Tennessee Williams, William Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Patricia Highsmith, Jack Kerouac, Truman Capote, Gore Vidal, Allen Ginsberg, Alfred Chester, Joe Orton, and Mohamed Choukri.
