Drive your Plow over the Bones of the Dead

'A magnificent writer.'- Svetlana Alexievich, 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature laureate

'Janina is such an unusual, engaging narrator that her nihilism is strangely cheering; this was one of the funniest books of the year.'- Justine Jordan, Books of the Year 2018, Guardian

'Tokarczuk's novels, poems and short stories consistently open up unpredictable wonders and astonishments, and there isn't a genre that she can't subvert. ... Antonia Lloyd-Jones pulls off a flawless, intimate translation, even tackling the technically dazzling feat of presenting Blake s poems as translations from English into Polish, back into English. ... [Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead] will make you want to read everything that Tokarczuk has written.' --Financial Times

With Drive Your Plow Over The Bones of the Dead, Man Booker International Prize-winner Olga Tokarczuk returns with a subversive, entertaining noir novel. In a remote Polish village, Janina Duszejko, an eccentric woman in her sixties, recounts the events surrounding the disappearance of her two dogs. She is reclusive, preferring the company of animals to people; she's unconventional, believing in the stars; and she is fond of the poetry of William Blake, from whose work the title of the book is taken. When members of a local hunting club are found murdered, Duszejko becomes involved in the investigation. By no means a conventional crime story, this existential thriller by `one of Europe's major humanist writers' (Guardian) offers thought-provoking ideas on our perceptions of madness, injustice against marginalized people, animal rights, the hypocrisy of traditional religion, belief in predestination - and caused a genuine political uproar in Tokarczuk's native Poland.
