    An American literary cult figure, Paul Bowles established his legacy with the novel The Sheltering Sky. An immediate sensation, it became a fixture in American letters. Bowles then returned his energies to the short story - the genre he preferred and soon mastered.Bowles' s short fiction is orchestral in composition and exacting in theme, marked by a unique, delicately spare style, and a dark, rich, exotic mood, by turns chilling, ironic, and wry.

    D. Donohue says: "Mesmerizing and beautifully produced"
    "Damn Good Short Stories!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Stories of Paul Bowles to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is very well done. The readers were above average and suited the tales. One of the best auble downloads to date (I have over 150 audible books mostly classics)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stories of Paul Bowles?

    The dark and sublime ones...


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no

    This stunning release includes the highly acclaimed re-make of Dylan Thomas' definitive play, Under Milk Wood, with Richard Burton and Siân Phillips as the first and second voices.

    Sarah says: "Superb classic radio"
    "Incredible audio production"
    Overall

    This is one of the best audio recordings I have ever heard. I don't listen to much poetry but it doesn't get much better than Richard Burton reading Under Milkwood.
