    The short fiction of American literary cult figure Paul Bowles is marked by a unique, delicately spare style, and a dark, rich, exotic mood, by turns chilling, ironic, and wry - possessing a symmetry between beauty and terror that is hauting. Clearly, Bowles's ruthless unsentimentality and cruel wit are not for everyone. Among the sixty-two works here are some of Bowles's most famous, including 'The Delicate Prey,' 'A Distant Episode,' 'Pastor Dowe at Tecate,' 'Call at Corazon,' and 'Allal.' 657p.
