The Alteration

24 Mar

This book, written by Kingsley Amis in 1976, is a deeply thought provoking alternative universe story. Like “His Dark Materials,” this book imagines a world where the Catholic Church reigns supreme, science is heresy, and everything in society is in service to the Church. The “alteration” of the title is the proposed castration of the young male singer – and the steampunk quality of this story is riveting – coming back to me over the days since I read it. Highly recommend especially for fans of sci fi/fantasy.
