LbW November: THE SPARROW by Mary Doria Russell

The Sparrow  

 

 

Please join Literature by Women in November as we read Mary Doria Russell's debut novel The Sparrow. This was once pitched to me as "Jesuits in space" - I've been waiting for an opportunity to read it and see if I agree. (And compare to A Canticle for Liebowitz, another SF/dystopic novel centering on a Jesuit-like monastery devoted to the memory of a mysterious engineer.)

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.
