Summary:

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE

'A brilliant literary murder mystery.' —Chicago Tribune

'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?

    I stopped listening because of the narrator and listened to an original version in polish instead. Such a shame because the book is great!

  • Anonymous

    I had to stop listening as it so difficult to follow the story with this narrator. I’ll just read the book

  • Marek N.

    Great book....horrible horrible narrator!!! Why pick a Polish native? Because the author is Polish ? .... The narrator makes this audio book unbearable to listen .....
