The classic science fiction novel of a future dark age and humanity’s new renaissance
It is a new dark age of fear and ignorance.
An atomic Flame Deluge has ravaged the earth, and humanity’s survivors have turned against science.
In the depths of a hellish desert, the Order of St Leibowitz preserves the few remnants of mankind’s knowledge. Then a humble monk makes a miraculous discovery of several artefacts – including a note written by blessed St Leibowitz himself, which reads:
Pound pastrami can kraut six bagels – bring home for Emma
Could this holiest of relics hold the key to humanity’s salvation? A Canticle For Leibowitz is a sharp, satirical examination of humanity that is chilling, provocative and endlessly imaginative – an undisputed science fiction classic.
