Description
When first published in 1949, Paul Bowles' The Sheltering Sky was immediately hailed as a masterwork and became the cornerstone of his remarkable career. In the half-century since, respect for the book has only increased, as successive generations of critics and readers alike have found themselves held fast by the novel's incisive tale of psychological terror. This commemorative hardcover edition will bring this book to a new and eager audience.<P>The novel explores the physical and intellectual disintegration of three Americans at the end of World War II, as their assumed first-world superiority melts in the pitiless heat of the North African desert. Adrift in an alien culture, Bowles' characters are forced to endure the hardest lessons of human frailty, lessons which will leave them -- and readers -- forever changed.
