The Sheltering Sky

Port and Kit Moresby, 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.

'The Sheltering Sky is a book about people on the edge of an alien space; somewhere where, curiously, they are never alone' Michael Hoffman

'A novel touched with genius ... a book of challenging power and penetration, a story of almost unbearable tensions.'
