You are not I : a portrait of Paul Bowles by Millicent Dillon( )

You Are Not I is a portrait of the elusive writer-composer Paul Bowles, who left the United States in 1947 to live permanently in Morocco. There he created some of the finest American prose of the century, including the international bestseller The Sheltering Sky. In his brilliant and terrifying short stories and novels, he explores haunting themes of desire, exile, and emotional disintegration. Millicent Dillon interweaves episodes in Paul Bowles's life, distillations of his work, reports of their conversations, and speculations on the connections between his life and his work

A version of love by Millicent Dillon( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in northern California and Mexico in the twilight of the 1950s, A Version of Love illuminates the relationship between obsession and desire. The novel's lead players form a precarious triangle: Edmond, a psychoanalyst who has sex with his patient; Lorle, who has been in treatment with him for "hysteria" for several years; and Vern, a loner in the Sierra foothills who goes panning for gold and then love. With masterful control, Millicent Dillon charts the complicated interplay of the lives of her characters as they search for fulfillment in one another's love. We enter Lorle's vulnerable, bruised psyche and observe Edmond's vacillating, desperate needs as if we are immediate bystanders, and yet Dillon reserves judgment, allowing her characters' actions to dominate."--BOOK JACKET
