De avond is ongemak by Marieke Lucas Rijneveld

'De avond is ongemak' is het schrijnende verhaal van een religieus boerengezin dat wordt getroffen door de dood van een kind. Matthies komt op een dag niet meer terug van het schaatsen en laat zijn zusje Jas in totale verwarring achter. Door de ogen van de dertienjarige Jas zien we hoe de familieleden elk op hun eigen manier omgaan met het verlies. Vader en moeder zijn volledig verlamd door verdriet en zien niet hoe Jas en haar zusje Hanna en haar broer Obbe ondertussen langzaam ontsporen. Onder leiding van Obbe ondernemen ze morbide experimenten met dieren en Hanna en Jas dromen hartstochtelijk van een Redder, een man als Boudewijn de Groot, een man die hen mee kan nemen naar de Overkant en hen in kan wijden in de geheimen van hun seksualiteit. Marieke Lucas Rijneveld (1991) geldt als een van de grootste talenten van de Nederlandse letteren. In 2015 debuteerde ze met de meermaals herdrukte dichtbundel 'Kalfsvlies', die werd bekroond met de C. Buddingh' Prijs voor het beste poëziedebuut.

A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller

Highly unusual After the Holocaust novel. In the far future, 20th century texts are preserved in a monastery, as "sacred books". The monks preserve for centuries what little science there is, and have saved the science texts and blueprints from destruction many times, also making beautifully illuminated copies. As the story opens to a world run on a basically fuedal lines, science is again becoming fashionable, as a hobby of rich men, at perhaps 18th or early 19th century level of comprehesion. A local lord, interested in science, comes to the monastery. What happens after that is an exquisitely told tale, stunning and extremely moving, totally different from any other After the Holocaust story

Nothing is as beautifully, richly red as flowing blood on snow.
