The Sheltering Sky
With A Preface by the AuthorBook - 2005
A beautiful, yet disturbing, tale of two people traveling into the Sahara. Although the couple appear to be smart, independent travelers, they are not equipped to travel into the desert. Thus, each time hardship strikes, pieces of their comfortable lives and the identities they had constructed seem to peel away. The shifting sands and unforgiving sun are metaphors for the shocking and vulgar circumstances that befall them.
