“Here in this wholly mineral landscape lighted by stars like flares, even memory disappears… A strange, and by no means pleasant, process of reintegration begins inside you, and you have the choice of fighting against it, and insisting on remaining the person you have always been, or letting it take its course. For no one who has stayed in the Sahara for a while is quite the same as when he came.”


Paul Bowles (1963)
