In a remote Polish village, Janina spends the dark winter days studying astrology, translating William Blake’s poems, and tending the summer houses of wealthy Warsaw residents. Her crazy and reclusive reputation is reinforced by her not-so-secret fondness for the company of animals over humans. Then a neighbor of hers, Big Foot, is found dead.

Soon more bodies are discovered in increasingly strange circumstances. As suspicion grows, Janina becomes involved in the investigation, knowing that she knows the criminal police. I wish someone would pay for her thoughts. . .

A deeply satisfying fairy tale thriller, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is a provocative exploration of the bleak frontiers of sanity and madness, justice and tradition, autonomy and destiny. Who do we consider healthy? question Who is worthy of a vote?

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is the first book I read by Nobel laureate Olga Tokarczuk. So the obvious question is: did it feel like a book written by someone who had mastered the craft of writing enough to win the grand prize? The answer for me is a clear no. It took me from mid-June to early September to read the book: I picked it up, read a few pages, got bored, and put it down to start and do something else. I finished it more out of a sense of duty – the book was a birthday present from my wife – than anything else.

So what about the story? Well, Mrs. Duszejko lives in the wooded mountains of western Poland, near the Czech border. She has a few friends and has nicknames for all of them, and for the other people she meets in the nearby town. She loves animals, doesn’t eat meat (at least I don’t think she does, I can’t remember right now), she’s fascinated with the poetry of William Blake and is an avid astrologer.

She would love me. So much so that much of the book is devoted to reflecting on the impact that astrology is having on the world. However, when she’s not talking about the stars, she’s only too happy to tell us the backstory of just about everything she encounters, and that really stops the book on more than one occasion.

However, the story unfolds in spurts as first her neighbor and then several other notable citizens are found dead and/or murdered. Ms. Duszejko believes that all the people were killed by animals in retaliation for their own suffering at the hands of these hunters. But without wanting to spoil the ending, Ms. Duszejko is a terribly unreliable narrator, and if you’ve seen any of the John Wick movies recently, the ending might not be as surprising as Tokarczuk would have liked.

We ladies of a certain age often lament our invisibility, but the main character in this delightfully quirky, funny, thought-provoking, and at times sad and disturbing novel takes #broomsticks to a whole new level, capitalizing on his “old bastard” status. . . that nobody realizes that he is getting away with it; Well, if you want to know what he’s getting away with, you’ll have to read the book for yourself.

Living alone in a remote village in Poland, Janina Duszeko looks after wealthy people’s holiday homes, works part-time as a primary school English teacher, and tries to cope with her many and sometimes mysterious “little ailments.” .

A former civil engineer who has built bridges all over the world, she is a staunch believer in the ability of astrology to determine the arc of our lives, she is a translator of William Blake, and she loves animals so much that she equates hunting and eating meat with murder. She is also an astute observer of human nature, including her own, she likes to use caps arbitrarily and despises her given name.

It’s hard to determine whether Mrs. D is crazy, brilliant, deluded, morally bankrupt, morally upright, or all of the above, which is part of the appeal of this wonderful book, which acknowledges that nothing comes easy and that there is no black. and white. Tokarczuk never preaches; she entertains and thinks at the same time – making this book a worthwhile (and enjoyable) read.
