A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers

“This novella is a gently funny story of the first meeting of a very odd couple set in a world built on kindness and community. The rich world and character building will make readers feel deeply invested in the success or failure of Dex and Mosscap’s very low stakes road trip. A warm, optimistic tale of finding purpose.” – DG Library Staff 

On the moon of Panga, a monk named Dex sets off from the city in search of a new purpose. When a robot named Mosscap approaches their camp one night, they become the first person in living memory to meet a robot. Together the unlikely pair head off the beaten path and try to find the answer to the question “what do people need?”
