The Sheltering Sky
by: Paul Bowles
The Sheltering Sky is an unabashed & self-conscious exploration of the American experience abroad. Examining the interconnectivity of landscape & culture, the novel follows three Americans through the harshness of the North African desert. The impassibility of the desert is exposed as something beyond its acrimonious heat & immeasurable horizons: as dune after dune of sand is traversed, town after town odyssey'd through, the construction of the human is whittled into its barest form. The result is at once a bitter mirror & an insightful window into our world.View In Store
