Paul Frederic Bowles (December 30, 1910 - November 18, 1999)
was an American expatriate composer, author, and translator.
Following a cultured middle-class upbringing in New York City,
during which he displayed a talent for music and writing,
Bowles pursued his education at the University of Virginia
before making various trips to Paris in the 1930s.
He studied music with Aaron Copland,
and in New York wrote music for various theatrical productions,
as well as other compositions.
He achieved critical and popular success
with the publication in 1949 of his first novel,
The Sheltering Sky,
set in what was then known as French North Africa,
which he had visited in 1931.
In 1947 Bowles settled in Tangier, Morocco,
and his wife, Jane Bowles followed in 1948.
Except for winters spent in Sri Lanka (then known as Ceylon)
during the early 1950s,
Tangier was his home for the next fifty-two years,
the remainder of his life.
Paul Bowles died in 1999 at the age of 88.
His ashes are buried in Lakemont Cemetery in upstate New York.
