The Collected Works of Jane Bowles.
A Near Fine tight copy with age toning to the text block in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This collection of Ms. Bowles' works includes: Two Serious Ladies (novel), In the Summer House (play), and seven short stories (Plain Pleasures, Everything is Nice, A Guatemalan Idyll, Camp Cataract, A Day in the Open, A Quarreling Pair, and A Stick of Green Candy.) Jane met and married expatriate writer Paul Bowles and they lived in New York until 1947, when Paul moved to Tangier, Morocco; Jane followed him in 1948. While in Morocco, Jane had an intense and complicated relationship with a Moroccan woman and later had a close relationship with torch singer Libby Holman. Jane's play In The Summer House was performed on Broadway in 1953 to mixed reviews despite the accolades of Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and John Ashbery who considered her to be one of the finest and most underrated writers of American fiction.
