Jane And Paul Bowles


Paul hired a driver, a young Moroccan, Mohammed Temsamany, whom he dressed in a military-looking uniform with shiny boots and puttees and with a visored cap. In the Jaguar they drove south to Marrakech and then to Fez, where Paul began to see a good deal of the young Moroccan painter Ahmed Yacoubi, whom he had first met in 1947. Whe Paul heard from Jane that she wanted to return to Morocco, he suggested that he drive to the French border to pick her up. Paul invited Ahmed to come along with him.

With Temsamany in his uniform and Ahmed in his white turban and jellaba, Paul drove through Spain.

Jane was in very good spirits when they picked her up at the border. During the trip south, however, she objected every time Paul drove. She insisted that she always knew exactly what Paul was thinking. She said she felt as if she herself were driving when he drove and she could not relax.

Women have approximately 4 times the emotional range of men. This means 2 things: 75% of the time we have no idea what they are feeling; if Jane was uncomfortable, it was for good reason.
