About this title

Synopsis:

Dr Slade and his wife are on holiday in Latin America when they meet Grove and his mistress. An apparently chance encounter, it opens the door to a nightmare as the Slades are lured on a trip where the only guides are fantasy, hallucination and death.'

About the Author:

Paul Bowles was born in 1910 and studied music with composer Aaron Copland before moving to Tangier, Morocco. A devastatingly imaginative observer of the West's encounter with the East, he is the author of four highly acclaimed novels: The Sheltering Sky, Let It Come Down, The Spider's House, and Up Above the World. In addition to being one of the most powerful postwar American novelists, Bowles was an acclaimed composer, a travel writer, a poet, a translator, and a short story writer. He died in Morocco in 1999.
