Inhaltsangabe: "Let It Come Down", with its title from Macbeth, tells the story of Dyar, a New York bank clerk who throws up his secure, humdrum job to find a reality abroad with which to identify himself, and his macabre experiences in the inferno of Tangiers as he gives in to his darkest impulses. Rich in descriptions of the corruption and decadence of the International Zone in the last days before Moroccan independence, Bowles' second novel is an alternately comic and horrific account of a descent into nihilism.
Inhaltsangabe: A novel from the pen of Paul Bowles, the author of such works as "The Sheltering Sky" and "Up Above the World". Nelson Dyar, a man without aims or values, reaches North Africa after giving up his job as a New York bank clerk and is drawn into the unfamiliar world of Tangier's expatriate community.

Buchbeschreibung Black Sparrow Press, Santa Barbara, 1980. Advance Review Copy. A Very Good plus copy in light blue paper wraps with a touch of fading. In Let It Come Down, Paul Bowles plots the doomed trajectory of Nelson Dyar, a New York bank teller who comes to Tangier in search of a different life and ends up giving in to his darkest impulses. Rich in descriptions of the corruption and decadence of the International Zone in the last days before Moroccan independence, Bowles's second novel is an alternately comic and horrific account of a descent into nihilism. This reissue edition contains a new preface by Bowles not in the original 1952 edition. Black Sparrow routinely issued very few advance copies for review usually between 20-50 copies. Uncommon thus.
