Paul Bowles’ centenary affords an occasion on which to discuss one of the most striking and controversial novels of its period. Following the American couple, Kit and Port Moresby, in their increasingly nightmarish journey across the harsh North African desert, The Sheltering Sky is a true cult classic whose influence and reputation continue to grow.
