THE DELICATE PREY AND OTHER STORIES BY PAUL BOWLES
Despite the fact that many of them have appeared in out-of-the-way places, the stories of Paul Bowles have already created a sensation among critics and fellow-writers. Of the seventeen stories in this volume, all but one are set in Arab North Africa, the Far East or Latin America. They share an almost Gothic preoccupation with violence— particularly that violence arising out of the clash of the Westerner with the alien world of the East.
PAUL BOWLES is a young American writer and musician who for the past several years has been wandering about in North Africa and the Far East. He now lives in a remodeled native house in the Arab quarter of Tangier. His extraordinary novel, The Sheltering Sky, was a nationwide bestseller.
