About this title:

Synopsis: In 1954, Moroccan resistance to French rule is reaching boiling point, and only four English-speaking visitors are left at a hotel in the medieval city of Fez. To Amar, a young Moslem, they are enticing, and as the rebellion grows he believes he is helped by knowing the inner feelings of others.

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.
