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.
Mohamed Choukri (1935-2003) is one of North Africa's most controversial and widely read authors. After a childhood of poverty and petty crime, Choukri learned how to read and write at the age of twenty. He then became a teacher and writer, finally being awarded the chair of Arabic Literature at Ibn Batuta College in Tangier. His works include For Bread Alone and Streetwise.
