really liked it
bookshelves: short_fiction, queer
Read in January, 1993 , read count: 10

Bowles is dry and mean as bone; these stories are extraordinary, and upsetting, and really pretty amazing. "Pages from Cold Point" is, hands down, the most upsetting story I've ever read. In a fiction workshop back in NYC, I brought it to class when it was my week to choose the selection.
