A Psalm for the Wild-Built, by Becky Chambers

Staff Pick

Sometimes there is love so deep and broad that it is almost impossible to express in words, but for the sake of this new book by Becky Chambers, I must. In a post-climate apocalypse, post-industrial age, a tea monk travels from settlement to settlement on their bike, making tea and listening to folks and their problems. When they decide to leave the beaten path, they meet a self-actualizing robot and the two travel the wilderness. The prose is gentle, the world is beautiful, the characters are inspiring, and reading this book (all in one sitting, I may add) gave me a little hope for the future and reminded me to hold fast to those I love. I cannot recommend this book any higher and I am very excited to see what the planned series holds in store for the Monk and the Robot.
