Tobias WolffThe Delicate Prey is in fact one of the most profound, beautifully wrought, and haunting collections in our literature,…Bowles's tales are at once austere, witty, violent, and sensuous. They move with the inevitability of myth. His language has a purity of line, a poise and authority entirely its own, capable of instantly modulating from farce to horror without a ruffle and without giving any signal of delight in itself. It never goes on parade.
