WINNER OF THE 2018 NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE With Drive Your Plow Over the
Bones of the Dead, International Booker 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.
