Description

With stunning pictures and with the written word, Spirits of Tangier captures the unique atmosphere of this Moroccan port city straddling two cultures, from the 1920s to the present day. It highlights some of the legendary residents who became Tessa Codrington’s friends: Paul and Jane Bowles, the American painter Marguerite McBay, and the english aristocrat, the Hon. David Herbert. Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton, playwright Tennessee Williams, royal photographer Cecil Beaton and the painters Claudio Bravo and Patrick Procktor are revealed in candid portraits, and the splendid and sometimes sad stories of great houses that change their styles with their very different owners are featured, combined with pictures from some of the extravagant parties still hosted in them.
