About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Two Serious Ladies by Bowles, Jane.

Description:

The first British Commonwealth edition, following the American edition by many long years but seemingly equally as scarce. Some foxing to the top page edges, very small ink notation to front endpaper ("43"--perhaps in reference to the original publication year?)--a square, near fine copy, in a dustjacket that's very good or near fine, depending on your tolerance for moderate general rubbing and soiling. Price intact. A great copy. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description München, Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, 1991. Taschenbuch. Kartoniert. Book Condition: Sehr gut. 4. Auflage. 188 (4) Seiten. 18 cm. Umschlaggestaltung: Celestino Piatti. Sehr guter Zustand. Radikal, witzig-ausgelassen und zugleich bissig wird am Beispiel zweier grundverschiedener Damen das existentielle Risiko der Suche nach weiblicher Freiheit und Autonomie beschrieben. Die Autorin wurde mit dem Erscheinen des Buches 1943 zur Kultfigur der New Yorker Avantgarde. - Jane Auer Bowles (* 22. Februar 1917 in New York; † 4. Mai 1973 in Málaga, Spanien), geborene Jane Stajer Auer, war eine amerikanische Schriftstellerin und Dramatikerin. Leben und Werk: Jane Bowles’ Werk ist nicht umfangreich: 1943 wurde ihr Roman Zwei sehr ernsthafte Damen veröffentlicht, 1956 das Stück In the Summerhouse; außerdem erschienen einige Erzählungen. Das Manuskript ihres ersten Romans Le Phaéton Hypocrite von 1936 gilt als verschollen. 1938 heiratete sie den Autor und Komponisten Paul Bowles (1910–1999). Das Paar bereiste Südamerika und Europa und lebte seit 1948 in Tanger. Während Paul Bowles durch seinen Roman Himmel über der Wüste zu einem führenden Existenzialisten aufstieg, hemmten starke Schreibblockaden und zunehmende Alkohol- und Drogenprobleme ihre Produktivität. Mit 39 Jahren (1957) erlitt sie einen Schlaganfall, von dem sie sich nie mehr völlig erholte. Paul Bowles brachte sie schließlich 1967 in einer psychiatrischen Klinik in Málaga unter, wo sie blind und gelähmt 1973 starb. Jane Bowles war extravagant, neurotisch, geplagt von Zweifeln und Schuldgefühlen, Opfer von irrationalen Ängsten und Phobien vor Aufzügen, Eisenbahnzügen oder Tieren. Einen Großteil ihres Lebens hinkte sie wegen eines steifen Knies nach einem Sturz vom Pferd. In Momenten beißender Selbstironie verlachte sie sich selbst als „Crippie the Kike Dyke", die verkrüppelte jüdische Lesbe. Tennessee Williams urteilte über sie: „Ich halte Jane Bowles für den größten englisch schreibenden Autor unseres Jahrhunderts, worin Harold Pinter mir zustimmt."[1] . .
