A Distant Episode

A Distant Episode - Paul Bowles Bowles spent most of his life living in other countries, mostly Central America and North Africa. His stories often take place in those places and are about how being in the wrong place at the wrong time, misunderstanding the culture, and/or distrusting your own intuition can get you into some disturbing situations. If you like Patricia Highsmith (another of my favorites), you'll like Bowles.
