poisoned[edit]

Is there any truth to the rumours that she was poisoned which caused her "stroke" in 1957? Opiumjones 23 (talk) 00:36, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

This page misrepresents the subject[edit]

Jane Bowles deserves a rather more academic page than this. It smacks of the pr her husband's circle have maintained. the lady deserves better. Her writing and life is and was far more interesting than this page reflects. Her lesbianism etc have been ignored. Her husband Paul Bowles marriage despite his sexuality and his murder attempt etc. i will research and provide some sources. Opiumjones 23 (talk) 00:45, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Your foolish comments will probably scare any serious biographer away from this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.215.115.31 (talk) 16:29, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Re deletion by BKLisenbee and his comment[edit]

I only added a footnote to info an anon user had correctly added. Plus added the reasoning given in Michelle Greenes's book that she was driven to it by her husband's interest in Yacoubi. as ref see [1]Opiumjones 23 (talk) 00:25, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Bisexual[edit]

According to a biography about Paul and Jane Bowles they were bisexual and not gay/lesbian. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/31/books/31bowles.html

The glamorous couple lived like exotic cats, together but separate. Jane Bowles was also bisexual, and took female lovers. “We knew that we loved each other no matter who else might be in our lives,” Paul Bowles said. Among her nicknames for him were Bupple and Gloompot.
