Bowles' Short Stories

We read "Pages from Cold Point" in the The Faber Book of Gay Short Fiction over ten years ago, so almost none of our current members could be expected to remember that. Nevertheless, it's a story that everyone would find worth reading, and doubly so for his other early short stories "A Distant Episode" and "The Delicate Prey," which both take place in settings similar to The Sheltering Sky. They're all to be found in his first short story collection The Delicate Prey and Other Stories as well as any other collection of his stories. (Additionally, most anthologies of post-WWII stories would contain one of them.)
