The Sheltering Sky

New York: New Directions, 1949. First American Edition.

Author's first book, basis for the 1990 Bernardo Bertolucci film starring Debra Winger and John Malkovich.

Fine and unread in a Near Fine dust jacket. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Jacket is lightly toned, with a touch of nicking to the extremities, and a tiny closed tear to the front panel, repaired with cello tape on the verso. Still, an exceptional copy.
