The Sheltering Sky Paperback
by Paul Bowles
Edited by Michael Hoffman
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
'The Sheltering Sky is a book about people on the edge of an alien space; somewhere where, curiously, they are never alone' Michael Hoffman. Port and Kit Moresbury, a sophisticated American couple, are finding it more than a little difficult to live with each other.
Endeavouring to escape this predicament, they set off for North Africa intending to travel through Algeria - uncertain of exactly where they are heading, but determined to leave the modern world behind.
The results of this casually taken decision are both tragic and compelling.
