Waterstones Says

An endlessly rewarding triumph of post-apocalyptic writing, A Canticle for Leibowitz details the recovery of scientific knowledge over hundreds of years after a nuclear war obliterated progressive civilisation. Thoughtful, humane and generous, Miller’s magnum opus is beloved by both hardcore science fiction devotees and general readers alike.     

The atomic Flame Deluge was over.

Pound pastrami
can kraut
six bagels
- bring home for Emma.
