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.
