1 Bowles, Paul The Spider's House : A novel of Morocco Today
New York Random House First Edition Cloth 
(1955). Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt, green, and blue. Octavo. (Faded) blue topstain. 406pps. Stated First Printing. There is very mild rubbing to the tips and the spine-ends. Also, a previous owner's name is penned on the ffep. A small, vintage bookseller's label is affixed to the rear pastedown. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has touches of rubbing, shallow chipping at the extremities, and a small tear at the top of the front panel; the original price is intact. A nice copy of the author's fourth book. ".The great medieval city of Fez is the fountainhead of native resistance to French rule in Morocco. In this strange and disturbing place lives the boy, Amar, son of a Moslem holy man. Working for a potter, he gets into a fight with another youth and, while running away, finds himself in an orchard owned by Moulay Ali. There begins his personal entanglement in the violence which is about to erupt all over Morocco. Amar, almost instinctively, hates both the French and the Jews, yet there is not even the seed of 'evil' in him. Still, he is cast into the snarled relations between: John Stenham, an author, staying in a comfortable hotel, who has experienced the future and has been able to reject it; enigmatic Alain Moss, an Englishman living in the same hotel; and Lee Veyron, an American divorcee, who is not even conscious of the direction in which she is moving. These people, and others, are involved in a moral struggle set against a fiery background of political scheming and, ultimately, undeclared war. They are caught between the relentless French colonial secret police and the pitiless Istiqlal terrorists. Confused and resentful at their predicament, they move in an aura of intense suspicion and fear, even as the final rioting flames across the Medina."
