About This Item: 
"Extraordinary Tokarczuk's novel is funny, vivid, dangerous, and disturbing, and it raises some fierce questions about human behavior My sincere admiration for her brilliant work." --Annie Proulx In a remote Polish village, Janina devotes the dark winter days to studying astrology, translating the poetry of William Blake, and taking care of the summer homes of wealthy Warsaw residents Her reputation as a crank and a recluse is amplified by her not-so-secret preference for the company of animals over humans Then a neighbor, Big Foot, turns up dead Soon other bodies are discovered, in increasingly strange circumstances As suspicions mount, Janina inserts herself into the investigation, certain that she knows whodunit If only anyone would pay her mind A deeply satisfying thriller cum fairy tale, Drive Your Plow over the Bones of the Dead is a provocative exploration of the murky borderland between sanity and madness, justice and tradition, autonomy and fate Whom do we deem sane? it asks Who is worthy of a voice?
