A Psalm for the Wild-Built - Monk & Robot (Hardback)Becky Chambers (author)
- 10+ in stock
A beguiling new fable from the author of the Wayfarers series focuses on the unlikely friendship between a rogue robot and a tea monk and poses subtly profound questions about desire and fulfilment within a compelling, beautifully wrought story.
It's been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend.
One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honour the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of 'what do people need?' is answered. But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how. They're going to need to ask it a lot.
