About This Item

ECCO/HarperCollins, NY, 1999. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. "In this classic work of psychological terror, Paul Bowles examines the ways in which Americans apprehend an alien culture - and the ways in which their incomprehension destroys them. The story of three American travelers adrift in the cities and deserts of North Africa after World War II, 'The Sheltering Sky' is at once merciless and heartbreaking in its compassion. It etches the limits of human reason and intelligence - perhaps even the limits of human life - when they touch the unfathomable emptiness and impassive cruelty of the desert." [Pub. Info] One of the major American novels of the 20th Century. 50th Anniversary Edition.
