    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?

    ©2019 Olga Tokarczuk and Antonia Lloyd-Jones (P)2019 Penguin Audio

    Kritikerstimmen

    Named a best book of 2019 by Time, NPR, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, and BookRiot.

    PEN America Translation Prize longlist

    Warwick Prize for Women in Translation shortlist 

    “A marvelously weird and fablelike mystery.... Authors with Tokarczuk’s vending machine of phrasing...and gimlet eye for human behavior...are rarely also masters of pacing and suspense. But even as Tokarczuk sticks landing after landing...her asides are never desultory or a liability. They are more like little cuts - quick, exacting and purposefully belated in their bleeding.... This book is not a mere whodunit: It’s a philosophical fairy tale about life and death that’s been trying to spill its secrets. Secrets that, if you’ve kept your ear to the ground, you knew in your bones all along.” (New York Times Book Review

    “While it adopts the straightforward structure of a murder mystery, [the book features] macabre humor and morbid philosophical interludes [that] are distinctive to its author...[and an] excellent payoff at the finale.... As for Ms. Tokarczuk, there’s no doubt: She’s a gifted, original writer, and the appearance of her novels in English is a welcome development.” (The Wall Street Journal

    Drive Your Plow is exhilarating in a way that feels fierce and private, almost inarticulable; it’s one of the most existentially refreshing novels I’ve read in a long time.” (The New Yorker

    My favorit book of the year.

    I liked everything about the book: story, people, settings and how the world is told throught the eyes of what people see as a "cranky, old woman". Well read.

    Vegan preaching wrapped in magic realism, stopped listening a third in.

    I read a recommendation for this book in an article about the “silliness of climate fiction”, and this was praised as a better alternative. I got this as my monthly free book through Audible, but I stopped listening at the beginning of chapter Uranus in Leo, because even free it’s still not worth my time. I can spend those hours listening to a book I might actually enjoy.
    Whether or not that’s the intent, the book sounds annoyingly preachy. There are the vegetarianism/veganism staples that hunting/killing animals is evil, hunters are evil brutes that mysteriously die, seemingly by the hooves and paws of forest animals.
    This may just be how the eccentric beliefs of the protagonist are portrayed and the animals may not have done anything, but it smacks too much of magic realism, which I strongly dislike, for me to listen to this further.
