[Novel] The Sheltering Sky (Paul Bowles)

the sheltering sky


A novel about a couple that bit a bit more than it could chew by figuring money was all they needed to survive in the alien culture of Morocco.

Exotic setting
Predictable narrative
Interesting, profound characters
Never gets particularly exciting
A relatively engaging plot
Enlightening on Morocco culture in early 20th century
Thought-provoking on cultural disconnect
