Or do you think that I am making this up? I wint back to the hotel and said to Big Mama [his wife], Git packed! We’re clearing out of this country … . (66) Similarly, the small town of Asilah provided the inspiration for the play Suddenly Last Summer (1958), in which a character’s desire for the kind of Spanish beach boys who provided such a common sexual outlet for gay sex in Tangier leads to his being torn apart and devoured by them (Green 266). For Joseph A. ” For Said “Orientalism is a style of thought based upon an ontological and epistemological distinction made between ‘the Orient’ and (most of the time) ‘the Occident’”; it is a form of discourse that serves “as a Western style for dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient” that operates via (here Said quotes Nietzsche) “a mobile army of metaphors, metonyms, and anthropomorphisms—in short, a sum of human relations, which have been enhanced, transposed, and embellished poetically and rhetorically, and which after long use seem firm, canonical, and obligatory to a people” (Orientalism 2–3, 203).
A society thus relieved of the need to strive either individually or collectively can easily fall prey to the weight of indolence; this is precisely what occurred in Tangier, and the result was a stultifying ambiance of malaise and ennui.

Paul Bowles, Gysin, and, in a somewhat different manner, Burroughs (Chester first arrived in the country after its independence) each felt a deep attachment to colonial Morocco, particularly the expatriate enclave of Tangier in the days of the International Zone, fetishizing it as a non- or anti-Western space and embracing the liberties afforded the privileged Westerner under the colonial regime. Each in his own way had to reconcile the nostalgia he felt for this bygone world with the degree of understanding of and intimacy with the local culture that he acquired during his sojourn in the Maghreb and the degree to which he accepted the basic right of a people to choose their own form of government.
