A Canticle for Leibowitz

A Canticle for Leibowitz (1960) by Walter M Miller is a Hugo Award winning post nuclear apocalypse story that focuses on the monastery, the preservation of knowledge and has analogies to the allied destruction of the Abbey at Monte Cassino.
The book is in three parts that were written as associated stories. The first two are better, the third stretches the story on a little far.
The book is the best post-apocalypse book I’ve ever read and seems to be regarded as one of the best of the genre.
