special offer "Perhaps one of the greatest living voices in modern literature, Paul Bowles transcends the ordinary boundaries of what we call writing and poetry; in truth, he is a creator of worlds, a visionary with an imagination so poignant, feverish, inventive , and apparently limitless that his work seems of another mystical time and place altogether. Baptism of Solitude offers an extremely rare and intimate glimpse into the mind of this extraordinary artist. Taped in late 1994 at his home in Tangier, the recording captures the cadence of a modern magus, his readings sounding almost like incantations as they wend their way seamlessly through the ambient soundscapes constructed by producer Bill Laswell."
