First published in 1950, this book is a collection of exemplary short stories that reveal the bizarre, the disturbing, the perilous, and the wise in other civilizations—from one of America’s most important writers of the twentieth century. “Paul Bowles has opened the world of Hip. He let in the murder, the drugs, the incest, the death of the Square...the call of the orgy, the end of civilization.”—NORMAN MAILER “Paul Bowles’s sense of what can go wrong is as acute as that of any American writer since Poe....Bowles’s sensibility is classical in its aloofness, his prose as hard-edged and dazzling as a desert landscape at noon.”—JAY McINERNEY “The Delicate Prey is in fact one of the most profound, beautifully wrought, and haunting collections in our literature....Bowles’s tales arc at once austere, witty, violent, and sensuous. They move with the inevitability of myth.”—TOBIAS WOLFF

From master storyteller Paul Bowles comes a new addition to ecco's the art of the story series—"essential reading" for any witness to the magic of the short form, writes vendela vida All the tales are a variety of detective story," writes Bowles of this, his first short story collection, "in which the reader is the detective; the mystery is in the motivation for the characters' behavior." In such stories as "A Distant Episode" and "How Many Midnights," Bowles pushes human character beyond socially defined limits, mapping a transformed—often horribly transformed—reality. Bowles captures the duality of human frailty and cruelty in these seventeen taut and atmospheric tales, written between 1939 and 1949. Brutal and gorgeous, visceral and profound, this timeless collection is "one of the most profound, beautifully wrought, and haunting collections in our literature... at once austere, witty, violent, and sensuous....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" (Tobias Wolff).

Wilhelmina, genannt Willie, kehrt in ihre heimatliche Kleinstadt zurück, in der man gerade ein echtes Ungeheuer aus dem See gezogen hat. Und sie hat eine Frage: Wer von den vier Exliebhabern ihrer Mutter ist eigentlich ihr Vater? Voller Spannung und Zauber erzählt der Roman von einer Suche, die mehr enthüllt, als Willie lieb ist; und davon, wie sich die Geheimnisse einer Familie in einer einzigen Stadt manifestieren. «Ich war traurig, als das Ende des Romans in Sicht kam – einen größeren Erfolg kann man nicht erzielen.» (Stephen King)

Als Autor trat Amos Oz auf ihn bezeichnende Weise zum ersten Mal 1961 an die Öffentlichkeit, mit einem politischen Essay sowie einer Erzählung. Es folgten mehr als zwanzig Romane, Erzählsammlungen und Essaybände. In Wo die Schakale heulen, seiner ersten Buchpublikation aus dem Jahre 1965, acht Erzählungen, die erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegen, ist in exemplarischer Weise mitzuerleben, wie Oz zu dem Schriftsteller geworden ist, der er ist. In den Erzählungen sind alle den Autor prägenden Themen bereits versammelt: Der eminent politische Oz erzählt vom Kibbutzalltag in feindlicher Umgebung. Dabei zeigt sich: Politische Gegebenheiten sind äußerst wichtig für das individuelle und kollektive Handeln. Im Heulen der Schakale jenseits der Zäune ist der israelisch-palästinensische Konflikt präsent. Das Außen, die gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen, erklärt jedoch nicht hinreichend das Verhalten der Einzelnen: Es hängt im gleichen Maße ab von den Traditionen, den Phantasien, dem Glauben. Auch in den frühesten Erzählungen erweist Amos Oz sich als Meister im Verfolg der luzidesten Regungen seiner Personen, die sich auf keinen vorgefassten Begriff bringen lassen. Hier haben die traumhaft-utopischen Aspekte seiner Bücher ihren Ursprung – auch wenn die Hoffnungen von Autor und Protagonisten auf politischer wie individueller Ebene nie in Erfüllung gehen.

An edge city, poised at the northernmost tip of Africa, just nine miles across the Strait of Gibraltar from Europe and overlooking both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, Tangier is more than a destination, it is an escape, and the Interzone, as William Burroughs called it, has attracted spies, outlaws, outcasts and writers for centuries – men and women working out at the edge of literary forms, breaking through artistic borders. This outlaw originality is what most astonishes when encountering the literary history of Tangier for the first time. Particularly in the past century, the results were some of the most incendiary and influential books of our time, the most prominent being Burroughs' Naked Lunch and Paul Bowles' The Sheltering Sky. The list of "edge" writers who were drawn to Tangier is long, among them Ibn Battuta, Samuel Pepys, Alexandre Dumas, Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, Walter Harris, Jean Genet, Paul and Jane Bowles, Tennessee Williams, William Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Patricia Highsmith, Jack Kerouac, Truman Capote, Gore Vidal, Allen Ginsberg, Alfred Chester, Joe Orton, and Mohamed Choukri. This enthralling book captures the unconventional, multilayered story of literary Tangier and is a must-have for travellers, armchair adventurers and literature buffs, particularly aficionados of the Beat generation writers and poets who made the city their home.

The interdisciplinary debate about the genesis of the autonomous subject has tended hitherto to ignore the pre-modern period. The present collection of essays addresses this deficit. The closely interconnecting individual chapters trace and, in part, revise the history of concepts of the subject and self in classical and post-classical texts. Whereas previous work in this area has concentrated almost exclusively on philosophical texts, this collection also examines other genres, especially poetry.
