Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

In a remote Polish town full of summer homes, Janina Duszejko spends the winters with her two year-round neighbors—Bigfoot and Oddball—and her friend Dizzy. She’s a crank and a recluse, and when she isn’t translating Blake or teaching English, she’s gathering the birth dates of everyone around her so she can read their signs, or going off about the lives of animals. When Bigfoot turns up dead, she immediately has a theory as to what happened—a theory that’s reinforced as other people go missing or also meet their end. But no one will listen to her, until it’s too late. A combo murder-mystery and cautionary tale about heeding the stories of old women—and about the interconnectedness between humans and the more-than-human world.
