    • Publisher: New Directions
    • Published: November 2000
    (50th Anniversary Edition). First published in 1949. In this classic work of psychological terror, the author examines the ways in which Americans apprehend an 'alien' culture. The novel, centered on three worldly young travelers - Port Moresby, his wife, Kit, and their friend Tunner - adrift in the cities and deserts of North Africa after World War II, is merciless in its evocation of the emotional dislocation induced by a foreign setting and the limits wrought by the unfathomable emptiness and impassive cruelty of the desert. Made into a major motion picture directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. 313p.

    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.
