A Canticle For Leibowitz [9780356513171]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

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.


AUTHOR: Walter M. Miller served as a radio operator and gunner in the US Army Air Corps during the Second World War. He was involved in the assault on the Benedictine abbey at Monte Cassino, the experience of which later led him to write his classic SF novel A Canticle For Leibowitz. Walter M. Miller died in 2006.
