In 2004 Wits human rights law lecturer, Barbara Adair, published In Tangier We Killed the Blue Parrot. This novel is set in a symbolically resonant space, Tangier, Morocco, and employs techniques of intertextuality to fictionalise the lives of Jane and Paul Bowles, American writers who were part of the expatriate community in Tangier for some time in the middle of the twentieth century.
