It’s been a number of years since I read this book and I admit I do not remember plot specifics. What I do remember is it was rich literature. I remember pausing every other page or so, stunned at the way Paul Bowles writes. Not quite a cheerful, light-hearted read but so very gratifying. I was feeling disillusioned about contemporary fiction and this book was like a big, fat reassurance that it can be rad and awesome. “The Sheltering Sky” rules.

An inspiring, beautiful book for every woman whose children have grown up, but who is not done growing herself. Kenison explores the belief that even as old identities are outgrown, new ones begin to beckon, inspiring readers to summon enough courage to heed the call.
