Bowles, Jane

Bowles, Jane (b. Jane Sydney Auer)

(1917–73) writer; born in New York City. After her marriage to the writer Paul Bowles in 1938, she lived mostly abroad. Her literary reputation rests on a slender output from the 1940s–50s (a novel—Two Serious Ladies (1943)—a play, and a volume of stories) notable for its feminism and an oblique experimentalism influenced by Gertrude Stein. A stroke left her unable to read or write for her last 15 years and she died in a hospital in Malaga, Spain, where she spent those years.
