A Little Original Sin

Dillon, Millicent

Jane Bowles (1917-1973), author of 'Two Serious Ladies', 'Camp Cataract' and 'In the Summer House' had a writing career that only spanned 10 years. She wrote about cultural identity, psychological disorder, physical illness, women's independence from men, and feelings of desperation.
Married to writer composer Paul Bowles, the couple moved to Tangier in the 1950s where she grew passionately attached to a local woman, later experiencing a writer's block that she could not resolve, before suffering a long illness.
