Dust on Her Tongue
Translated by Paul Bowles

Press Reviews

The Times Literary Supplement

"A genuinely surprising and original set of stories…a sense of violent unease shading into terror drifts up from every line…his writing has a sharp, almost sadistic edge."


"Compelling in the extreme…these twelve tales (that) boast of hidden dangers and lurking terrors, are written in a deceptively undramatic style, with masterful restraint. Stories that continue to disturb and delight long after they are laid to rest."
