If you are looking for a truly original, stylistically challenging writer, Jane Bowles is certainly worth investigating. She has long had an reputation amongst literary figures of her period (Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and John Ashberry, among others) as being one of the truly noteworthy writers of her time. This book, with a concise introduction by Capote, demonstrates why she gained such accolades from such celebrated artists. A must!
