    One of my favorite collections of short stories There are times when Bowles dispenses with traditional story conventions, as in there are no heroes or villains, some stories never reach a resolution, some don t even have a moral to them All I know is once you ve read A Distant...

    I feel that Bowles is at his best when he pens short stories He really knows how to condense suspense and tense scenarios into a few pages, usually leaving you unsettled Wonderful.
