really liked it

Read this while in Fez - and of course references were coming to life paragraph by paragraph, which was a gift. Ultimately, I think Bowles succeeds here in voices he creates - one that belongs to a man we imagine to be very much like Bowles himself and one to a young Moroccan man. The eventual interdependence of the men clarifies the distinctions in their perspectives, which of course allows the reader for more depth than either could ever muster alone.
