english 101: pick #5: the sheltering sky by paul bowles

It’s time to get started on our next pick: The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles. A story about three American travelers adrift in the cities and deserts of North Africa after World War II, The Sheltering Sky explores the limits of humanity when it touches the unfathomable emptiness and impassive cruelty of the desert.
