Tangier in the 60s and 70s was a fabled place. It became muse and escapist's dream for artists, writers, millionaires, and socialites, who wrote, painted, partied, and experienced life with an intensity and freedom that they never could back home. Into this louche and cosmopolitan world came John Hopkins, a young writer who instantly became a part of the bohemian Tangier crowd with its core of Beats that included William Burroughs, Paul and Jane Bowles, and Brion Gysin, as well as Tennessee Williams, Jean Genet, Yves Saint Laurent, Barbara Hutton, and Malcolm Forbes. Here, in the pages of Hopkin's cult classic, all the decadence and flamboyance of those days is brought to life.
John Hopkins is a writer who, after graduating from Princeton, lived for many years in Tangier and was a central figure in the bohemian literary crowd of the '60s and '70s.
